ImPAWsible – Visions Of Earth

Alex Kirkbridge took this beautiful photo for July’s 2006 edition of National Geographic Magazine. It’s orignally called “Visions Of Earth” and shows Bubba, a big fox terrier, while he is cooling his feet during a game of swimming-pool fetch in Crystal River, Florida. Light shining into the pool creates a mirror on the underside of the water’s surface, giving the dog his four-legs look. Friend of mine sent me this picture, you should check more of them here.

  1. its a pool and the pic is taken underwater and on upper part of the pic is the reflection of the water.

    Duh but i do like this illusion! :)

  2. wow that is weird, but all they had to do was use an “iMac” To Do that.. i’ve done it before.

  3. i get it! It is possible, I can do that! I did it like 10 times with my cousins’ dogs.

  4. hah, how would that be a mirror…unless you cut up a dog…
    It’s clearly just taken underwater.
    Nonetheless, it’s pretty cool.

  5. For the non scientifically minded, look up “total internal reflection”.

    Cool pic though

  6. It’s cool, but don’t dogs already have four legs??

    I’m confused! And also, you’re right, if it was a mirror, you would have to cut the poor dog’s legs off!

    Oh well!

  7. i fink dat dis is a gr8 illusion bcoz itz soooooo simple, but at da same time itz pretti cool, coz it lookz like itz photoshopped coz itz such a cool illusion!! lol

  8. I don’t get why this would be scary.
    And I’ve got to admit that I won’t believe that this is a real photo… Maybe it is, but I’ver never seen the surface mirror something that clearly even though I dived wuite a lot in my life. And the dog must stand absolutely still for at least 10 seconds, otherwise you’d see small wave-circles around his legs…
    Well, I can’t prove that it’s not real, but I#m not convinced…

  9. u no peoplz. if u wanna comment on these things, u should read what the guy says at the top.
    he says what it is
    a dog

  10. Cool illusion! I’ve never seen that before and I can keep my eyes open underwater. :-D
