I always get messages from people and they ask me if I know how to create optical illusions, because they want me to teach them how to do it. What I tell these people is that anyone can easily create an optical illusion. Sure, there are some very intricate illusions out there that have been created by brilliant minds, but those types of illusions are few and far between. Believe it or not, most optical illusions are created completely by accident. Someone takes a picture, notices something strange about it and then they realized that they’ve inadvertently created an optical illusion.
Today, I’m going to show you an illusion and I want you to tell me whether or not you think this illusion was created on purpose or if it was created by accident. I could just imagine a tourist taking the picture below and then realizing that he accidentally created an optical illusion. Scroll down to check it out.
So, what do you think? Was this illusion done on purpose or do you think it was created by accident? Let me know by leaving a comment below.
