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.

Chess Board Optical Illusion

Here is an excellent optical illusion photograph taken by Alain db of the Konica Minolta Users group on PBase.

This is an actual photograph not a digital/photoshop manipulation. The best that I can tell is the only thing done to this image was to convert it to Black & White. This photograph was awarded 1st place in Minolta Challenge #16 on PBase.

How do you think it was done?

Could a magnet be holding the King to the side of that raised block?

Still not sure how this photo was taken?

Alain was kind enough to provide an inside look in color with a slightly different lighting so you can tell without a doubt how it was accomplished.
