Is this lighthouse we are seeing here, so little, or is the man holding it actually a giant from Narnia or something…? Or is it possible that this is yet another optical illusion? Don’t know, but if I were you, I would rather check “Man Holding a Sun”, “Man Holding a Taj Mahal” and “Tiny People” just in case!

    This is the much-photographed lighthouse at Peggy’s Cove, Nova Scotia, Canada. It is about 15 meters (~50 ft.) tall.

    It’s a matter of perspective.

    I love these. My cousin went to Africa once and did an almost flawless one like this, that made it look like he held 3 miniature elephants in the palm of his hand.

    I like these illusions, i did one very similar to this myself for my art coursework. But i used my own hometown’s most famous landmark – Blackpool Tower! Looked very effective.

    Oh I love this, this is in Nova Scotia, where my family is from. I come every year, to N.S., but haven’t been to the light house in almost 10 years. My dad used to get so mad at me cause all I would do was run around on those rocks. Dangerous too, some kids actually drowned there.

    2 things:
    1. his shadow gives it away
    2. the cement is farther away than the man

    His shadow gives away nothing… it’s examination of his hand and arm positioning that ruins it. He could simply, theoretically, be standing in from of a rock ledge.

    Lol, this is lame. Aren’t you meant to not have a shadow whilst doing this??

    This is very lame.

    is you just look at his shadow its kind of obvious.

    it is not really an illusion to me because the man is standing far away from the building and he just has his hand in the air.
