Optical Illusion Fiesta

Optical Illusions

Sometimes your eyes play tricks on you.
The pictures on this page are called"optical illusions."
Optical means vision. An illusion is something that isn't what it seems to be. An Optical illusion is something that plays trick on your vision. Optical illusions teach us about how the eye and brain work together to create vision.In out everyday three-dimensional (3-D) world, our brain get clues about depth, shading, lighting and position to help us interpret what our eyes see. But when we look at two-dimensional (2-D) images that lack some of these clues, the brain can be fooled.
Can you figure out these optical illusion?
I figured out everyone of them in a split of a second.

I've sent some of these pictures to some of my friends but some of them took quite a long time to figure out.I guess this is due to way people interpret and reflects some personality in judging things.
I always tend to look at a situation from different perspectives.
