Luis Felipe Salazar Blanco sent in this cool black and white illusion he made with his digital camera. First I’d like to say, you have a cool name man! Second, I’ll let Felipe describe this submission himself: “I really love your internet site. I have your widget on Mac. I’m always checking it. Congratulations! And since I like it so much, I would love to participate. I took this picture of my wife the other day, it was accidental (the illusion). Its not obvious, but you might like it. She is looking into a pocket mirror, and on it we see her eye that she was pulling down. It looks like she is doing the “eye pulling” right on the image of her eye formed on the pocket mirror. Hope you like it.” I believe all of you got Felipe’s point, more short: it appears his wife is pulling her eye down, reaching inside the mirror. Very nice post, do you agree? Another cool black and white illusion can be found here. Check Flickr section for more cool optical illusions.

    I hate these illusions that you really have to search for what makes them illusions. I always look at the illusions first before reading the explanations that precede them. I personally don’t consider it a good illusion if the trick of the eye has to be explained to you. It should be obvious. I showed this to 4 of my friends and none of them knew what the illusion was supposed to be until I explainned it.

    I’ve only had this widget for a week, and I always look forward to the next illusion. However, it is so small that it’s hard to enjoy the image- and sometime to even see any of the detail that makes up the image. How can I make the viewing image bigger?

    It’s ok…

    for “Anonymous” I can explain – it almost looks like the thumb holding the mirror is pulling down the reflected eye. Took me a while to get it. I think having “fluked” it once, you could “set it up” even better a second time, maybe using the index finger instead of the thumb…?

    We had a baby today.

    This is for anonymous #9: To make the picture bigger click on it twice, and a new page will cdome up, normally bigger. If it isn’t, copy it to powerpoint or word and enlarge the image.
