Concerning the site, I’m proud to announce that we hit Digg’s front page yesterday with spinning silhouette illusion. This triggered over 200,000 visitors in one day, and resulted in many new automatic link trades in our toplist. So big thanks goes to whoever submitted the article to social bookmarking sites like I explained yesterday! Hope you do it again once in the future :)
About the illusion… Here’s what I want you to do: open this article, see all of the photos inside, comment as you would that “this isn’t optical illusion“, just some plain houses and locations, and you’ll be wrong once again! What you see below are models and miniatures of locations in Switzerland photographed by Stefan & Susanne Walter to appear as if they were real locations. If you are a long time visitor, you will notice this illusion is complete opposite of Olivio Barbieri’s Toy World. While Olivio photographed real locations to look as if they were miniatures, Stefan and Susanne did quite opposite – they photographed miniatures to appear as real stuff!
This is what Stefan or Susanne wrote: “I am having fun visiting your site. I just visited your site with the pictures of Toy World by Olivio Barbieri and Miklos Gaál. Here I am sending you also pictures of small model buildings. I tried to take the picture from such an angle that they look real. By the way these buildings are of Switzerland.”
