This pattern is quite trippy, but it really only affects you if you’re looking from above, as this picture is. The pattern narrows and shrinks as it gets closer to the middle, which makes it look like it’s drawing away from us, but it’s all just classy tiles set on the floor.
The woman in the middle of the image shouldn’t feel claustrophobic in a narrow room since she is not trapped in a deep well, she’s just standing on the floor in the middle of the room. Though it does look like she should call for a rescue from the abyss she fell onto. No matter how long it takes your brain, eventually, it will figure out it’s a flat surface.
The Mysterious Floating Faucet
Where is the water coming from? How is the faucet staying up? Well, the answer to both questions is the same – hidden inside the flow of water that is coming out of the spout is a pipe that suspends the installation and provides water. This fun art piece is a classic picture subject, and we're sure you can see why.
It looks like something out of a science-fiction film. But this pipe isn't condensing water out of thin air; it's just using the water that is already in the pool under it. You can even make your own small version if you're crafty enough. There are kits you can use, too.
World's Biggest Seagull
A lot of these images are the result of being in the right place, at the right time, and having your camera out. Most likely, the person behind this photo just wanted to snap a pic of a seagull that wandered close, and he or she then saw the man walking in the background.
The man is at the bottom of a set of stairs or at the bottom of a drop, while the seagull is at the top. The camera managed to focus on both, even though the seagull is a bit hazy compared to the man. Likely the photographer didn't want to worry about getting things perfect since there was a good chance the seagull would just fly away.
Attack of the Giant Grasshoppers!
This picture could very well be ripped from one of those classic B movies that have giant irradiated insects stomping through downtown and wreaking all sorts of havoc. The look is perfect, and the big bug really does appear to be lifting a leg to smash a car.
In reality, the bug is hanging on for dear life as it rides the car's windshield to its new destination, wherever that might be. If you want to try and recreate this look, mess around with the focus setting on your camera, and you might be able to get a promotional image for a fun monster movie of your own.
The Mysterious Floating Island
You might be thinking that this picture underwent a little bit of Photoshop design to trick you, but it's not the case. No, the island on the left side of the picture isn't floating – it's still settled on the water, just as proper islands should be.
Large bodies of water create a haze with water vapor, steam, or reflections, which might be coming into play here. Follow the dark line that runs under the island to the right, and you'll see that the dark band is just another section of the water. There's a boat and a second island that is resting on top of it. It just so happens to merge perfectly with the island in the background.
