I run into a lot of interesting pictures on the Internet in my travels. Some move me, some make me laugh, and some make me think. Then there are the pictures that just leave me in complete and total bewilderment. These are the pictures that make me scrunch my face and stare at the computer screen, mouth agape, for a good few moments. Now those are my favorite! And, I just so happen to have one of these for you today. I call this real stair illusion…The World’s Weirdest Stairwell…

worlds weirdest stairwell

I would really like to know what was going through someone’s head when they built the World’s Weirdest Stairwell! Was it actually designed like this? Was it an accident? How did someone not realize that something was amiss here during the building stage? Whose fault is it exactly? I don’t know about you, but my money’s on the guy who can’t use a tape measure!

I even thought that this stairwell here may have been some sort of a trick of the eye or Photoshop job, but I don’t think so. I think this little gem is just a real stair illusion, created on accident by a bunch of workers who had too many beers on their lunch break. At least I hope so.

It’s no secret around here that I despise winter and can’t wait for warm sunny days. Lately, I’ve been posting images and illusions that remind me of those beloved lazy summer days, and today is no different. In my Internet travels this morning, I found a fun Escher style pool illusion…

I don’t know about you, but if I as this guy, I might think twice about jumping off of that diving board. Well, if he ever actually gets to a diving board, that is.

I hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend! As most of you regular readers probably already know, the weekends are a time for the fun illusions around here. Today, I have an interesting perfectly timed bird photo for you…

This bird looks like he’s just racing across the sky! It must take some super bird wing strength to keep up with those planes! And, the trail behind him is an interesting little touch in this perfectly timed bird photo. It makes me wonder if perhaps ate a lot of beans before takeoff…

The weather is finally starting to warm up, and I think we can finally start looking forward to some sunny summer days! I don’t know about you, but I plan on making the most of my summer this year. The past couple summers, I’ve been working too hard to enjoy the weather much. This year, though, I plan on getting out more, doing some hiking and heading to the lake. Maybe I’ll even push my favorite brother into the lake. Who knows? If I do, though, I’m hoping that someone has a camera to capture a shot like this hovering over water lake photo…

hovering over water

This photo was perfectly timed and taken after the man hovering over water was pushed and just before he broke the surface. It makes him look like he’s just suspended right there in mid-air. I’m actually not sure if this guy was pushed into the lake or if he jumped in by himself, but it’s more fun to think that he was pushed.

I don’t care how old you are, bubbles are pretty fascinating. When we’re kids, we love blowing bubbles and chasing them down to pop them. As we grow older and get to be serious, responsible adults…well, not much changes. We still love blowing bubbles and chasing them down to pop them. (At least I do.) I always find bubble illusions fascinating and fun as well. There have been a few bubble illusions on the site over the years, but I think this dog in a bubble illusion is one of my favorites…

It looks like this spunky little puppy is getting a fun ride in a bubble. I can’t tell if it looks like the dog is really small or the bubble is big enough to accommodate him. If it’s the latter, that would have to be a really big bubble!

What do you think of this dog in a bubble illusion? Love it or hate it? Either way, be sure to take a moment and use the stars below to rate it. Your ratings help determine what sorts of illusions all of you like and which ones get posted.

After just waking up from an accidental two hour long nap, I’m just raring to go and ready to tackle the rest of my day. Yeah. Right. I just want to go back to bed and sleep the rest of the day away. Alas! There’s work to be done and warmer, almost spring-like weather outside! It’s definitely not a day to be stuck inside sleeping. It is definitely a day to do a little nature watching, though. If you’re stuck in the office, though, you can still do a little digital nature watching. Today’s image is a perfectly timed photo of a bird catching a berry…

I sometimes wonder if some of these perfectly timed nature photos are Photoshopped. The idea of catching a shot of a bird catching a berry at just the right second just blows my mind!

What about you? Do you suspect some Photoshop shenanigans? Or are you satisfied with these perfectly ties photos as is?

If you enjoyed this bird catching a berry, you might also get a kick out of this diving bird!

Coastal towns see all sorts of unusual things. They’re full of myths, legends, and lore, and tales of a ghost ship or two is not entirely uncommon. It’s a rare case, however, when you would actually get to see a ghost ship! But, today’s illusion gives you a glimpse at just that!

I’m not sure where this ghost ship photo was taken, but it’s one of the neatest illusions that I’ve seen in a while. Then again, I’m a sucker for big boats and ships, especially ones that look like they’re floating in mid air.

Of course, a floating ghost ship isn’t really possible. So, I guess the question of the day is can you figure out how this illusion was created? I’m guessing that the buildings on the right are located on a hill, inland from the waterfront. Heavy fog on certain days would obscure the water’s edge, making it difficult to see where the land ends and the water begins. Looking down the hill toward the water, with dense fog covering everything, it would look like a large ship was simply floating in the air.

God morning! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. I think Sunday is a good day for a fun little illusion, don’t you? Weekends are supposed to be fun, and I hope this funny cat picture brightens your day just a little…

cats butt

Can you see what makes this a funny cat picture? Or, did you not even see the cat at all? Some people may not even notice the cat with the presence of another animal in this picture.

Can you see it?
