From boats that can float on water to a dice stack that defies gravity, we count 40 weird pictures that will trick your brain!
Here’s a photo of a tropical parrot in a tree. But, wait! Look a little closer and you’ll see it’s actually a strategically posed woman in colourful body paint!
Former world champion body painter Johannes Stoetter is behind this impressive optical illusion, which took four weeks of painstaking planning.
The force is strong here. Or should that be the horse? How about both? In this photo, a young recreational horse rider appears to be living every pre-teen boy’s dream: wielding a lightsabre!
He’s also dropping his jaw and looking off camera, as if he’s just seen his first pair of boob, so it looks like a good day for the young Jedi.
In this perfectly timed backyard snap we see that someone’s successfully trained their golden retriever to breathe fire. We always knew you could do it, Lassie.
Put your hands in the air like you just don’t care! Yep, all four of them. This guy’s clearly on the team ’cause he plays amazing defence.
This landscape photo’s not quite as obvious, but with a bit of lateral thinking you can see these islands make up a sideways violin.
The main island makes up the violin’s body, the water is the neck and the two trees on the right resemble tuning pegs. This amazing trickery is caused by symmetry in the water’s reflective surface.
The image, titled ‘Momentarily headless’, features gymnast Katherine Coronel of Venezuela performing her routine at a rhythmic gymnastics competition in Colombia. Her supporters say she has a good head for gymnastics.
Sometimes when you gotta go, you gotta go – doesn’t matter if you’re surrounded by a hundred strangers or are seated two metres from an elderly woman. This should coin the expression ‘to pee like an oscillating sprinkler’.
This photo is known as the hovering boat optical illusion and requires a very particular set of conditions to work. It’s taken somewhere in the crystal clear waters of the Carribean and, as you can see, the boat appears to be hovering in mid-air, rather than floating on the water. Pretty cool!
This piece of brain trickery is what you get when you cross a rocky island, a sprinkle of black magic, and a photographer with an insane eye for detail. It’s a horse, of course!
This image of a triangular dice stack looks impossibly put together. In fact, the longer you focus on it, the more your brain screams in protest, begging to know the secret before it leaks out your ears. Those responsible insist the image isn’t photoshopped, which begs the question: what David Blaine voodoo is this!?
