Optical Illusions Pictures That Have Us Scratching Our Heads

Every so often someone snaps a picture that’s taken at just the right moment and a magical image is created. Sometimes it’s just a strange angle that makes it look like someone has a mile-long arm, other times it’s an awkward perspective that tricks our eyes into seeing something totally different than what’s actually happening. No matter the reason, the result is a picture that makes people pause and look twice in an attempt to figure out what exactly is going on.

On Reddit’s Confusing Perspective page, thousands of amateur photographers upload their own funny pictures to amuse and confuse the hub’s millions of subscribers. Here’s a sampling of the biggest head-scratchers in the bunch.

Hey Dad, Where Are Your Legs?

This family was out for a pleasant hike when suddenly… this happened. Either dad was “shot out of a cannon,” as suggested online, or his legs are positioned behind his offspring in just such a way that they disappear, which is the more likely but far less hilarious option.
