Sunsets are a source of fascination and intrigue for many people, myself included. The peace and quiet you can sometimes feel during a sunset is just amazing, especially after a long and stressful day. As the day winds down and the sun starts to hide for the night, the light starts to dim and the world just seems to start to settle. That is also the time when most of us start to rely on alternate sources of light. These days, we have easy and convenient electric lights, but at one time, candles and lanterns were the go-to light sources after dark. I love this sunset in a lantern illusion, partly because I love sunsets and partly because there’s something so intriguing and alluring about the aniquated feel of an old lantern…
To me, this lantern illusion brings together two very beautiful things—the peace you can sometimes feel as the day winds to a close and the remnants of a simpler time. I don’t know about any of you, but I still have a few of these old lanterns left. They come in pretty handy during power outages, for sure, but they’re also nice to break out some nights just for the heck of it.

Fountains has always been a source of fascination for me. I love just sitting and watching and listening to them. There’s something very soothing in the sight and sound of water spraying and falling in a fountain. I could sit there and watch a fountain forever. Of course, fountains are also a great source for photo ops as well! A perfect example of this is this funky fountain illusion!
It’s a simple fountain in the middle of a pond, but this forced perspective photo turn it into something pretty spectacular! This fountain illusion was easy to create too. All it really took to create is the fountain, of course, and the perfect pose for the woman. From this angle, it looks like the water from the fountain is spewing right out of her mouth!
A very simple but interesting effect, I think! Be sure to rate this illusion with the stars below!

The Internet is perplexed over yet another optical illusion! This time, everyone seems to be up in arms about this shiny legs optical illusion…
Most people see these legs as being super shiny. It appears as though the legs are covered in oil, causing light to reflect off of them. But, not everyone sees shiny legs here.
Some people see something much simpler. I saw shiny legs here at first too. Once I saw the bigger picture, though, things started to become a little clearer…
Can you see it now? These aren’t a pair of shiny legs at all, but legs with streaks of white paint. The paint gives the illusion that light is reflecting off of the surface, making the legs appear oil slicked and shiny. Of course, the paint markers surrounding the legs are also a bit of a clue here too.
Several Internet users have also said that once you see the white paint in this shiny legs illusion, there’s no going back! You won’t be able to see the legs as being covered in oil again. All you’ll see are the white paint streaks.
What do you think? Did you see the shiny legs first? Did the larger image make it easier to see that it was just white paint? If you saw the shiny legs at first, can you unsee the paint?

A Leaning Tower of Pisa illusion picture is a must-have is you’re ever lucky enough to make it to the iconic Italian city of Pisa! Pretty much every tourist has had a photo taken of themselves with this slightly crooked tower. Usually, it’s a forced perspective photo giving the illusion of them pushing the tower over or leaning against it.
Some tourists, though, go above and beyond with their forced perspective photos. These cheerleaders took a pretty great one, but I think the BEST Tower of Pisa illusion (so far) goes to this lady!
Talk about a love for Italian culture! This lady actually has a picture of herself “hugging” the tower! And, with the way that the tower is leaning toward her, it looks like it just might be returning the affection. Looks like a little love might be in bloom here.

There’s nothing quite like the sun streaming through your window, especially in the morning. This isn’t exactly an easy thing to replicate, but I think that this surreal window shadow illusion does a pretty good job of it!
At first glance, even I was fooled and thought that this was nothing but a shadow of the window frame on the wall. It’s not, though. This is actually the work of artist Regina Silveira. The “shadow” on the wall and floor is not real, but painted on. This artist definitely captured all of the proper angles and lines to recreate a very realistic shadow. It makes me wonder if this window shadow illusion was modeled after an actual shadow.

Who’s up for trying to find hidden people today? This hidden people illusion is a classic one, and it will probably make most of you think a little. In fact, it might even make some of you quite frustrated.
I’m not going to tell you where all of the people are in this image, but I will tell you that there are six of them. Can you find all six hidden people here?
Chances are, you spotted at least four or five of the hidden people in this image. You have the musician in the front, who appears to be the main subject of the image, for one. Then you have the large face illusion, as well as the hidden faces that make the “eyes” of the larger face. But, can you find the other two hidden people in this image? The last two are pretty tricky! Let’s see if you can spot them…

I’m pretty sure everyone here has played with LEGO blocks at some point in their lives. If you didn’t play with them when you were a child, well…you’re deprived and possibly a little strange. But, I digress! You’ve probably played with them since you’ve grown up at least, either with your own kids or someone else’s. Even if you don’t absolutely love LEGOs like I do, you still have to appreciate this awesome Iron Man LEGO illusion!
This Iron man portrait was built completely out of LEGO bricks. Pretty cool, huh?
Well, it gets better, and I’m about to blow your mind…
Definitely cool! Show your love for this LEGO illusion image by giving it a solid five stars below!

Skull optical illusions have to be one of the most common illusions. I know we’ve posted several of them on the site already, but they’re always popular. There’s something drawing and alluring about the dark and macabre, I think, whether we like to admit it or not. And, since it’s getting closer to Halloween, I think a nice little skull optical illusion is in order, don’t you?
Well, what did you see first in this skull optical illusion? You most likely saw the skull first, because I mentioned it before showing you the picture. But, did you notice something else?
If I would have referred to this as “two guys in to hats” illusion, would you have seen them first, I wonder? The two gentleman in top hats give this illusion a slightly darker feel, I think. To me, it give it a bit of a Jack the Ripper feel to it… But, maybe I’m just weird like that. What do you think?
