Description Presented here is a vast gallery of many different forms of Optical Illusions. Whether these optical illusions are conveyed through fractals, photographs, architecture, art, or old fashioned pen and ink, they are bound to remind you that "seeing is not believing."

Caution!!!! Some of the optical illusions on this blog may cause dizziness or possibly epileptic seizures. The latter happens when the brain can't handle the conflicting information from your two eyes. If you start feeling unwell when using this website, immediately cover one eye with your hand and then leave the page. Do not close your eyes because that can make the attack worse.

Pencil Close-up Illusion

The Photo Artist shed this enlightenment on this photo, "Fish eye lens? No. Extreme macro shot? Nope." I'll add that there was no manipulation of this image.

How else could this effect occur?

It's a large novelty pencil

Excellent & absolutely correct.

This is absolutely cool! :) I'm into photography for some time, yet it has never come into my mind to do something like this, to somehow make an "optical illusion" that people would surely be interested in. :)

so obviously a large novelty pencil it isn't funny.

you can tell by the colouration on it, it's way too solid a red colour for a regular HB or wooden pencil as they have many cracks, dents and area's where paint has worn off after being used even the slightest bit which this one obviously has since it's been sharpened.

He should have thought of this composition before the lead broke off that huge novelty pencil - He probably can't find his gigantic pencil sharpener for it.
