Optical illusions are fun ways to test your skills of observation. They can also be extremely frustrating, and have been known to start all out wars online with people who have differing opinions. Anyone remember the infamous dress from Facebook? Entire families were torn asunder when it came to opinions over whether the dress was white and gold or blue and black. It seemingly divided our entire nation….nay, the world into two distinct camps. That’s how frustrating optical illusions can be. This photo was posted online just days ago, but it has already caused an internet firestorm. Some people see what it is right way, while others need someone to point it out to them. Take a look below and see if you can figure it out!
This is the photo in question. Looks like an ordinary brick wall right?
Getting it now? Let’s take another look.
You almost have to be able to see it now we’ve added a shadow. It’s actually a cigar sticking out of the bricks!
This picture highlights it plain as day. Just in case you still couldn’t quite make out the cigar.
Now that you’ve seen it, you can’t go back to seeing what you originally saw can you?
I had to have someone point this one out to me. I wasn’t seeing what it truly was at all. Now that I have seen it for what it really is though, I can’t see anything else. Hopefully we can avoid another all out internet war over this. Too many feelings have been hurt, and families divided over something as simple as an optical illusion.
