Eye See You!

George recently shared this magnificent photo on our Facebook channel, where it was voted (by vast majority of our fans) as next featured illusion for our beloved website :D I wasn’t keen on it at first, but it seems that the eyeball in this guy’s sink is one of the best optical illusions our audience has seen in ages. The best things sometimes happen upon us unintentionally, and this is exactly what happened to Liammm when he decided that water circling the drain of his sink would make for a nice photographic subject. Some of our fans even suggested that the illusion is more pronounced when you’re looking at it’s thumbnail, via one of our widgets. Effect in place is called Pareidolia, just FYI.

Out of boredom, I tried to take a photo of my sink draining. I got a photo of an eye shaped whirlpool instead.” – Liammm

  1. Interesting, I like pareidolias and never seen anything like this. You can see this shot was taken in northern hemisphere (if not a mirrored photo) because water drains clockwise.
