Shadows That Made People Do A Double Take

by Stephanie Roemer

Have you ever seen an optical illusion? You know, the ones that play mind tricks on you, making you think you're looking at one thing, but you're really looking at something completely different? That's because, sometimes our brains can get confused when our eyes are trying to look at too many colors or shapes all at once, and it's a completely normal reaction for our eyes to be deceived.

Well, optical illusions are one thing, but then there are shadows. Have you ever noticed some of the incredible illusions shadows can create? They can turn up in the most unexpected of places, and be visible, sometimes for only seconds. So, in other words, if you catch one of these amazing shadow illusions, you're pretty darn lucky!

Scroll down to check out some of the most majestic shadow illusions caught on camera for yourself. Enjoy!
