Occasionally, you will come across something that will make you wonder if your eyes are deceiving you. Even after a few more looks, your mind is completely perplexed as to how what you are seeing is even real! We' ve gathered over 30 photographs of real- life events that will make you feel this way. Prepare yourself because what your eyes see will be completely different from what your mind thinks.
Take care! Big Foot is on his way to town.
Big Foot is about to step on the roof of a parked car with his massive pair of sneakers, which will undoubtedly damage the car and cause more than just a dent. With clever photography and careful positioning, this image of a massive sneaker about to flatten the car was created. What was your point of view?
In this photograph of an airplane flying past a giraffe and its baby, the plane appears small in comparison to the enormous giraffe, which is about to touch the plane with its nose while the young one looks on. To the naked eye, the giraffe appears to be inspecting the plane and its passengers from close quarters. Perhaps they forgot to stamp their passports, or the pilot failed to turn in his flight plan. They won' t be able to get past our vigilant giraffe mother and her baby.
I' ll call security if you don' t take your hand off my shoulder!
Caption: In this image, we see a man extending his arm all the way to the girl' s shoulder. This must be the guy we were warned about, the one who enjoys scaring people when he reaches out with his arm and suddenly feels a hand on their shoulder. Perhaps this is what they meant when they told us about the law' s long arm, an extraordinary arm that can stretch like an elastic band.
Man- Eating Giant
That' s going to be a delectable morsel. The giant boy was about to swallow that annoying little man who kept bothering him while he was trying to nap in the garden. This photograph carefully used perspective and depth to create the optical illusion of a boy about to swallow a man alive. I' m sure it duped you as well.
The Legend of Little Bigfoot
That new baby food really works; it helps babies grow larger feet, which helps them stay firmly grounded. This image demonstrates what perspective and light can do to our perception of this baby with enormous feet. At first, you don' t recognize it as adult feet; everything appears normal until you look closer. You can see why it fooled you and me now.
relocating the Eiffel Tower
Moving the Eiffel Tower to a new location, allowing for more development space. That has to be insane. Can it really be true, and why would they want to do that? The massive crane prepares to lift the Eiffel Tower in one piece and move it over the buildings to a new location. The crane was photographed in just the right position to give the impression that it was about to lift the Eiffel Tower. The iconic landmark isn' t going anywhere; it' s just the perfect example of an optical illusion of a commonplace object.
The First Man on the Moon
Some people use a parachute to land on the moon, proving that you don' t need a spaceship to do so. This photograph of a parachute jumper gliding in with the moon perfectly in the background gives the impression that the jumper is about to touch down on the moon. What a fantastic illusion!
Floating in the water
Look at me, everyone! I' m floating! With her ability to sit on the surface without a flotation device, this little girl appears to defy nature' s forces. This perfectly timed photograph of the girl jumping into the pool gave the impression that she was sitting on top of the water while everyone else was in it. The girl, as a focal point, tricks the eye into thinking she can float on water.
The Return of King kong
Turn around, King Kong has returned. This towering giant baboon is perfectly positioned to flatten the car in front of it, which appears to be attempting in vain to avoid it. The massive arm resting on the car' s roof and the red brake lights help to highlight the potential danger that the occupants may face, while the baboons in the background reinforce the illusion of the baboon' s gigantic size.
The fantastic image was captured through the windscreen of a baboon in a safari park who jumps onto the car' s bonnet in search of a titbit.
Madonna, you' re crying.
The photograph depicts a glacier crying about the state of our planet and everything that is going on. If you look closely, you can see the Madonna frozen in ice, tears streaming down her cheeks. This image depicts the ice melting with water that began to flow down the glacier' s face, eroding the surface to resemble a Madonna with tears cascading down to end up in the sea. It appears surreal.
Ice Hockey Player Who Is Invisible
In ice hockey, tempers can flare and punch- ups are common, but being invisible to protect yourself seems a bit far- fetched. This image depicts an invisible player, with only his headgear and clothes visible, getting into a fight with an opposing player.
This perfectly timed photograph of the player' s headgear in the air after it became dislodged during the punch up gives the impression that he is invisible, with only his clothes visible to the naked eye. I had to look more than once before I figured out what happened; you should try it as well.
