Shimmering waves illusion
Category: Moving Images | Added: March 9, 2013 | 1 comment
Running across this optical illusion you can see three wavy shaped white lines. If you stare at this picture you will think the white lines change to a silver colour and start to shimmer giving the appearance that they are moving like water flowing. There is nothing actually moving in this image however, it is just another example of how your eyes can deceive you.

Black chair illusion
Category: Double Meanings | Added: March 8, 2013 | 7 comments
Here we have a picture of a black chair, the type you would find belonging to a set of furniture to match the dining room table. When you first look at this chair you will probably think you are seeing it from the front. However if you focus your attention more on the vertical bars running down the back of it, it gives the illusion that you are looking at the chair from the back. So which way do you think this chair is really facing?

Hidden animals in trees illusion
Category: Shape and Color | Added: March 7, 2013 | 3 comments
In this simple black and white optical illusion drawing you can see a group of trees. Hidden amongst the trees are a number of animals which include a lion, deer, pig and a horse. Those are the easier one which I have been able to pick out, how many animals can you spot? I believe there are at least eight hidden in this image.

Eye test illusion
Category: Size and Distance | Added: March 6, 2013 | 3 comments
When you first look at this optical illusion image it is difficult to determine what exactly you are looking at. Here we have a black oblong shaped box with some strange white shapes inside it resembling blocks but they are actually letters making up a two word sentence. The point of this illusion is to test your eyesight to see if you can pick up what the letters say. For best results close your eyes almost completely until you can make out the words. It is easy when you know how - so what does it say?

Hand drawing a hand
Category: Photo Manipulations | Added: March 5, 2013 | 4 comments
Here we have an image of a sheet of paper from an artist sketch pad pinned down on a table by four drawing pins, one in each corner to hold the paper in place to stop it from moving. On top of this paper you can see a pair of hands attached to blue cuffs from a shirt and each hand is holding a drawing pencil. This optical illusion gives the appearance that both hands are real flesh and blood while at the same time they are both drawing the blue shirt cuffs that are attached to each other.
