What’s going on in this bizarre holiday photo?

We did a double-take!

What could just be a regular holiday photo has left the internet baffled after revealing an unexpected optical illusion.

The photo is of a young man and woman and at first glance you might notice she is carrying something pretty unusual?

‘F***** hell, I thought she was holding the tree 😳😂’ wrote The Archbishop of Canterbury, who shared the photo to their page. 

The comments exploded with people commenting that it took them far too long to realise it was just a coincidence that the young woman’s hair and handbag made it look like the tree’s trunk was in front of, and not behind, her shoulder.

‘I’m so confused!’ wrote one commenter.

It took me 10 minutes to realise she is holding her bag not the tree 😂 said another.

How long did it take you to figure it out?
