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.

Vintage Perspective Illusion

Judging from the story accompanying this image this photograph must have been taken in the 1930s. The timing was excellent. I wonder if they got this on the first shot. I am also curious what the conversation was like working up to this shot.

"My uncles loved playing with cameras and even had a darkroom in the basement of the house in the picture. This is my Uncle Jim, who, last April, drove me all over Manhattan in his Buick at 86 years old. He and my Aunt Delores are hardcore New Yorkers - they have lived there since after the war, minus a decade in Tel Aviv."
Thanks for sharing John and and best wishes to Uncle Jim.
