15 Pictures That Allow Us to View Beyond What Is Normally Seen

A first glance at a photo doesn’t always reveal all its secrets, like a frying pan that’s actually just a mug full of tea, or snow in mountains that turns out to be white buildings. This phenomenon happens due to variables like angles and lighting, for example, and it creates amusing challenges.

Bright Side is now testing your observation skills with some real-life optical illusions.

1. “These cats aren’t connected.”

2. “Picture? What picture?”

3. “My big red pupil looks like a planet.”

4. “Our security camera and our hanging lights make our customers look like they’re wearing wizard hats.”

5. “Giant electrical outlets dangling before the camera”

  • “The ‘Plug into the Future’ machine has a big fake outlet in front of it. It’s standing on 2 blue posts on the left and right. Check the bottom right of the outlet and follow the blue line down to get a better grasp of the base.” — MikeOShay / Reddit
