Hole in The Grill Illusion

One day Georgia looked out of her window and thought her grill had a hole in it, it didn’t took much effort and time for her to find out what she is seeing is yet another outdoor optical illusion, so thankfully she remembered our little community, and decided to share her photos with us. This is what she wrote in her email:

“Dear Mr. Illusion Man, I am in middle school and I love illusions and cool math things. I think your site is awesome and I have the widget. One day I looked out my window onto the porch and I thought there was a hole in the grill, but it was actually just really clear water reflecting the wooden pole thing. I put two different pictures on the email because I wasn’t sure which one was better. I hope you post it. Invisible illusions are one of my faves ;)”.

I am glad that you shared this with us Georgia, since it looks great (specially when you enlarge the photos). This is the first illusion after the widget update, and it should appear on your desktop in few minutes. Great opportunity to test the widget and comment it. The widget isn’t meant to replace the website, but to show you “illusion of the day” on your desktop. If you notice, by clicking on the image in your desktop widget, it will bring you directly to that particular illusion’s explanation and community comments. Also, this way you won’t miss all the related stuff I link through in my articles. Enjoy!

  1. I agree – naturals ones are great..Nice illusion!

    i’m tired of the photoshop ones, anyone can make thoose…

  2. yeh i agree with everyone – photoshop ones r dumb, natural ones r kl, and they r more clever than ones that anyone can do.
    great illusion!

  3. Hey, wow that is so cool that has happened to me once and i jlost 5 dollars because my friend said that it was water and i disagreed :(

  4. yeah maybe it looks like an illusion, but it is so classic, nothing particulary illusion…but mirror like..is that the goal? you can find this kind of stuff every times it rains! please send good stuff, not this kind that we see each time it rains!

  5. My favourite is the 2nd one, the colours match better…

    I agree with kitty cat, the natural ones are nice… as long as they don’t include photoshop…

  6. I love the ones where you can just go out into the real world and take a picture of a real optical illusion. This is a great example of that.

  7. lately these illusions haven’t been that great, to me it just looks like water on a grill cover…. ): I guess I just like the ones that are real illusions that you really couldn’t tell were illusions until someone told you….. oh well, hopefully you have some good ones to post…and soon =D.
    anyways I love this site!

  8. dont mean to sound like a drag,but where does the v-shape in the reflection come from? is it photoshopped?

  9. I agree with kitty cat for 2 reasons: One, CATS TOTALLY RULE!!!!!! Two, I like ones without photoshop as well.

  10. when i fist looked at this picture and didn’t read anything i knew it was water. you know why?? bcuz one day that happened to me! no lie! it was so freaky!
