Optical illusions can be as delightful as they are confusing. While some are deliberately created, such as the stunning and mind-bending work created by this tattoo artist, others happen completely by accident. We all remember the infamous era of “The Dress” a few years back, and now a new photo has surfaced on the internet that’s making people scratch their heads.
In this case, the question isn’t a question of “What is it?” but “What do you see first?” Many people have scrolled past an image of a snowy scene in the woods and thought they were looking at a man with a backpack running through the woods. On closer inspection, though… well, what do you see?
Yep, once you stare at the photo for more than a couple seconds, it becomes clear that this is actually a photo of a dog — more specifically, a black poodle — running toward the camera.
The image has left the internet divided as to what they saw first. Some saw the image “morph” from a running man to the real photo of a poodle, while others have no idea what people are talking about when they say they saw a man in the first place.
If you’re a part of the second group, maybe this will help you see what the first group is seeing:
It’s amazing how our eyes can play tricks on us even when the truth is right in front of us!
