A Changing Perspective

Optical Illusion

I walked by the Visual Illusion Company again yesterday. The first time I saw this trick of the eye was back in November. That time I didn't notice it until I looked at the photo on the computer. This time I saw it as I lifted the camera. The perspective of the barrels change back and forth all the time.

Lucky you told me what they are, they look like spotlights.

I can't believe how quickly they went from left to right and back again. Very interesting.

I just saw it after you explained it. Very cool. It actually "jumped." :)

I didn't read your comments before looking at the image and I saw the illusion immediately.

Then I realized from your comments that this was an intentional.

Nicely done...

Plays with my eyes but I love it. . .goes nicely with the photo of the full moon above, too.
