Eyes are a funny thing. They constantly feed us vital information about the world around us, but sometimes it feels like they are really dropping the ball. Think about any time you see an optical illusion. We know what we are looking at is fake, or not quite right, but our eyes will still fall for the trick.
I don't really have a good solution to this problem. Maybe we can all train our eyes to do better. That should work, right? Just try figuring out what's going on in these photos so your eyes will be prepared for the next time you see something just as strange.
