Optical Illusions.
Amazing Images That Will Twist Your Mind!

Some absolutely stunning illusions courtesy of Akiyoshi Kitaoka. I have colour reduced and resized some of these for easy download for dial-up users.

No.55 - Spinning Circles - This is a static image, but you won't believe it when you see it!

No. 56 - Autumn Colour Swamp - The inset of this image appears to move.

No. 57 - Spreading Patterns - There appears to be a lot of wave-like motion in this image, but again, it's all an illusion.

If you like these, please visit Professor Kitaoka's site.

Read Me before posting these images to a forum:
Copy the images to your own webspace first - this isn't a charity! I can redirect these requests at a moment's notice and unless you want to be publicly embarassed I suggest you either do this or ask nicely first and we may let you hot-link!

Kick back and let your unconscious mind to the work here. A few optical illusions.
