When you scroll down this page, looking at the bridge below it will be as if you looked back between your legs. Check it out! The effect it produces is really confusing.

  • Saint

    mirror. simple as

  • Anonymous

    Oh, get over it, Saint. You just aren’t cool enough to see how cool the brindge is… x.x

  • Tori

    It looks cool! Is that one of those images that was photoshopped to double back on it self (aka mirror it self) I’m just wondering.

  • Rose

    deffinetly no mirror effect cause both sides are obviously different.

  • Jenny

    I’ve seen larger ones like this, where the picture was about 3 times too long for the screen. As you scrolled, the effect was revealed. The concept is cool, but this one is executed poorly.

  • ME!

    jenny, I TOTALLY agree with you. There are better ones.

  • Vickytoria

    OMIGAWD A COIN!!!!

  • Duh

    Those aren’t coins, you moron.

  • wezul

    I’m surprised some idiot didn’t say ‘cropped.
    Isn’t that what is usually said when something is cool?

  • woo

    I believe you mean “‘shopped”.

    Good god. I can’t believe the level of ‘stupid’ on this page.

    Oh, how Stumbleupon hath failed me…

  • Tyler

    This is stupid. First off maybe you could typer your caption correctly, as to where it makes sense, I never once get a sensation of anything that has to do with legs. The pictures are just opposite each other in direction, what makes it so interesting again?

  • scylla

    hey tyler why can’t you be nice huh?, come on pepole this is a great illusion, if you think that’s stupid well find something better, you….

  • Ryan

    I think that this is just a picture taken with a super-wide angle lens, or a fisheye / wide angle. No photoshop involved, just using a specialty lens

  • kate

    that is hell cool

  • Alisha and Via

    wow….. my brain is.. confused.. i get it but..

  • Alisha and Via

    Ohh…. i havethe right words… Rediculously totally not as amazing as some but still cool brain-numbingly awesome.

  • Wikto

    Dude Awesome!!!!!!

  • Hopelessz

    I get it but it is real confusin XD

  • yewsuf

    god, this is lame.
    that’s a panoramic effect.

  • brandon…

    take a look at the picture..look at the trees before you scroll down… see the difference between the trees..

  • Charissa

    It looks as if I’m looking through my legs as I scroll down. Nice one! :D

  • Anony-mouse

    thats really cool. and if u click on the picture it shows the zoomed out view of it which looks cool as well.

  • raghav

    Wow, this is amazing! I want one!!

  • gggfefqgr

    yeah woot woot!!!!!!!EPIC!!

  • http://facebook.com Mary

    the other side is a upside down pic of the first side

    • Aster

      @ Mary — No, it’s not. Observe closely each side is different.

      The photographer photo shopped this, from several series of photographs of the bridge, lined them all up and faded them together.

      It’s not two pictures of the same side of the bridge.

    • Abagail

      it is upside down

    • Ryan

      It’s not upside down. Look closely. you’ll notice that the tree branches on one end are different from the ones on the other end.

    i think im ganna fall

  • miranda

    that makes my hed hurt

  • jsld

    By what definition is this an illusion?

  • Shriya

    Umm this is confusing, can someone explain? Thank you:)

  • random

    I agree with Jsld it’s a nice bit of computer artwork but it’s not an illusion because you’re not tricked into thinking anything, you’re just seeing what is actually there!

  • Suor de Sapo

    Are we stand up or upside down? That’s the ambiguity wich makes this an illusion.

  • AppaloosaGirl

    Whoa… that is really amazing…. It really feels like you’re turning yourself upside-down!

  • Aleesha

    here it is zoomed out :D bridge.jpg

  • Jeremy

    As a graphic designer, I fail to see why this is an illusion, or the least bit interesting. It’s simply a number of photos stitched together, and the area where the two images blend together isn’t even done that well. It’s blurry and texture of the bridge is missing.

  • Eric

    if you look really close at the middle of the pic the orange pollen things are split.

  • captian obvious

    its just a panoramic shot. duhh

  • kennt—

    cool, but I think I’ve seen the floss, The picture in the middle area is I think edited and its a bit abvious that its just joint together or something.

  • BG23

    It is a single shot from a rotating panoramic camera (also called a slit scan or scanning camera) set up with the axis of rotation horizontal.

    There are software based and purely mechanical/optical ones – like they use to take those very wide annual photos of school children (when you can run round the back and get in twice).

  • owen

    cool illusion. just one prob. the middle seems to bulge out. What up with that!?!?!?!?

  • Bananaman

    if yo click the picture, wth?! a mirror maybe, maybe not i dont get it :/

  • http://facebook.com/angeecheeks ASIAN

    Photoshop. Look closely. :P

    • adumbkid

      Not Photoshop! it’s obvious it wasn’t edited after the photo was taken, except maybe for the cropping. It was just a person with a panoramic camera taking a photo of the ground standing in the middle of a bridge. But to be honest, I’d never have the guts to stand there for long. I’d wimp out for someone to come sabotage the bridge.

  • pravin

    wooooooooow

  • tanya

    did anybody notice those maggots all over the wooden floor of da bridge..!!! eeeekkkksss

  • SScatbox
