Ever since i was a kid, I've been fascinated by optical illusions. Here's a small collection of my favourites. These particular ones play with the idea of depth perception and forced perspective.

As we view the world in 3D, it appears that the context in which we see things plays a huge part in how our minds interpret visual information presenting us with an apparent paradox. We take the visual cues of perspective and other environmental factors from the image which our minds try to make sense of leaving us with the feeling of disbelief and confusion.

You may want to grab a ruler and physically measure the objects to confirm their sizes

^^ This one absolutely confounds me, I don't know how many times I've re-measured it

Which one looks bigger to you?

A classic example of depth (mis)perception.

I love these things, please feel free to add your own favourites

Whenever I see an optical illusion, I love that split second feeling where your mind just says What The F***
