Double Take Moments of Optical Weirdness

Just a bit of foreground here and some shadows there, and boom, you've got yourself some eye confusing moments of double takery. It be the land of two headed dogs, photos that look dirty but aren't , and images where you can't tell if you're looking at a vast landscape or just the inside of a water bottle. It doesn't take much to throw off the eye in a double take inducing image of warped perspective.

Eye Confusing Moments of Double Takery

Our eyes try their best, but they don't always succeed. A small shift in light and shadow can result in impossibly levitating objects, dogs with human butts, gorillas with pants on, and any variation of double take inducing images. It doesn't take much warped perspective to get some accidental real life optical illusions going on.

Whether you watch baseball or not, it's hard not to enjoy someone bending the rules so successfully at such a high level. It looks totally stupid and unfair, but it's also kind of awesome that anyone could get away with some crap like this.
