Apparition for the near-sighted?

Apparition for the near-sighted?

People in Australia are flocking to see a fence post they say looks like the Virgin Mary at certain time in the afternoon ... in the right light ... if you’re a certain distance away ... and squint. You be the judge.

    Combination picture shows a woman reaching to touch a fence post (image on right) that some Catholics believe appears as a likeness of the Virgin Mary at a lookout near Coogee beach in Sydney’s eastern suburbs February 6, 2003. For more than a week devoted Sydney Catholics have been flocking to a vantage point about 300 metres (1,000 feet) from the small wooden fence which, when viewed at certain times each afternoon through squinted eyes (image on left), is believed to be a likeness of the Virgin Mary. Photo at left was deliberately shot out of focus to give an impression as if a person were squinting.

I’m not a disbeliever in apparitions and visions and signs, but this I have to think is a coincidence. What do you think?
