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.

Carnival Optical Illusion

I like this image for two reasons. One is obvious the giant hand holding the ferris wheel. The second reason is less obvious. Some of you may actually notice some anomalous motion in this image.

Tell me, if you think you notice motion leave a comment telling me if you see clockwise or counter-clockwise motion.

Mas é tão pequenininha..., originally uploaded by jutmartins.

i see some motion in a counter clockwise direction, but not much

That's what I saw too. Motion in the counter-clockwise direction. Photos rarely exhibit this type of illusion.

the photographer put his fingers infront of the lense while he was standing at a distance from the fairis wheel

it was going clockwise, it took it a while to get started

That's interesting, because I don't see it moving at all! Where do you have to look to see the motion? In the dead center? Or the background?

Juass, I think walt said that the picture has motion so everybody could see it when actually there's no motion at all.

I said "Some of you may actually notice some anomalous motion". Obviously not everyone will be able to discern this motion.
