Optical illusions are such fun because, even if you know your eyes are being fooled, they are fooled anyway. It’s a wonderful feeling, to get lost in an illusion. That’s why, as a kid, Eye Spy books were the best.

A talented artist by the name of Josh Sommers created some optical illusions that I think are just too cool not to share. He is a photographer and artist specializing in photo illustration, photo manipulation, panoramic and landscape photography… and boy, is he good. They may seem simple, but you’ll just keep staring when you realize how intricate and confusing these are.

There is no start, there is no end.
