The Squiggly Mile 

On the right amount of mind-altering substances, this trippy hallway probably just looks like a normal hallway. Although the floor and all of the walls in this space are actually perfectly straight, it looks as though that girl is navigating a dangerously curvy pathway. Lines are amazing.

Just Another Wave In The Wall

This mountain range is not really next to a lake. That thing that looks like a lake is actually a concrete wall. The shadows perfect hit the wall making it’s white paint appear to be the color of lake water. The sun directly hitting the top of the wall gives it the illusion that it’s a sandy shore.

A Classic Pattern

This pattern is known as the café wall illusion. These rows of black and white squares are actually parallel, even though they appear to be sloped.

You’ll Float Too 

No, this dude is not casually levitating a few inches above the asphalt. He’s just standing next to a wet spot on the ground that looks like it could be his shadow.

Master Of Disguise

A street artist in San Francisco painted this utility box so it would blend in perfectly with its surroundings.


Cross-Legged Archway

The Delicate Arch near Moab, Utah isn’t actually twisted. The side of the arch that’s closer to the camera is smaller than the side that’s further away.

A Rock In A Hard Place

Do you see it yet? Look a little bit longer. Spoilers in 3… 2… 1: See that little rock sitting on top of the brick that is slightly smaller than the other bricks?

That brick isn’t actually smaller. There is a cigar sticking out of the wall and the “rock” is actually the burnt end of the cigar. Trippy stuff.

To See The World In A Blade Of Grass

This patch of greenery is called “Qui Croire?” and it was created by French artist François Abélanet. The title translates to “who to believe?”

Although it doesn’t look that big from this angle, Qui Croire? is made from 3,500 square feet of turf, dirt, and straw. From any other angle, this grassy globe looks like a vast, irregular, weirdly shaped garden.

2D Building?

While this building looks like a flat slab of concrete, there are actually real, 3-dimensional people inside of it. Contrary to popular belief, this is not where all your favorite cartoon characters live when they’re not inside your TV.

2D building

The building is triangular, so you can’t see the sides of it from this viewpoint.

A Dip In The Road

This misleading floor pattern keeps people from running down the hallway. People are more likely to tread lightly if they think the floor has an inexplicable dip in it. From a different angle, this hallway looks perfectly straight.

Follow The Dot

At first, I thought this was a GIF, but it’s actually just one of the weirder illusions out there.

Underwater Waterfall

Well, actually, it’s more of a sandfall. This is Le Morne Brabant peninsula off the Island of Mauritius, and this illusion is the result of sand runoff in a deep channel.

Basically, ocean currents are pushing sand and silt down the plate boundary, give us the illusion of a water/sand fall.


Who’s In Front?

I have a very simple question for you. Which of these buildings is in front? It really doesn’t matter what you tell me, I can argue for either side.

Has Fashion Gone Too Far?
