15+ Confusing Pictures That Are All A Matter Of Perspective

While there are no shortage of things in this world that are bizarre to their core, we will also find that a lot of the things that confuse us are just giving us the wrong idea.

Just because we often ask “are you doing what I think you’re doing?” when we catch someone with their hand in the proverbial cookie jar, that doesn’t mean there aren’t times when it’s a genuine question.

And whether it’s due to lighting, bizarre angles, or a situation that gives us a blurry sense of scale and distance, we’re about to see that it’s surprisingly easy for perfectly normal pictures to seem completely incomprehensible.CXDE

1. Apologies if this reminds anyone of the Cats movie but a but a split-second flick of the tongue has given this cat a bizarre appearance.

That’s right, that’s the cat’s tongue and it hasn’t somehow grown creepily human-like lips. So I guess that’s the good news.

2. Not to worry, you’re not likely to ever walk into a spider web this big.

At least, that’s not what you’ll encounter if you ever find yourself on this French street.

Instead, we’re seeing the results of this street light shining through some drooping tree branches.

3. Wow, it looks like nothing is going to stop this couple from taking a nice picture together. Not even an explosion.

Except this isn’t actually an explosion, as you might expect.

Because while I suppose these two could very well be cool enough not to look at one happening behind them, we’re really just seeing the sun illuminate the side of a mountain.

4. Even if it doesn’t take long to realize what we’re looking at, there’s still that little moment that makes us do a double take.

In that moment, all we can see here is a tiny Tim Conway leaning in front of the poster of a movie that doesn’t look very good.

Of course, once we’re back to reality, it’s a lot clearer that most of that figure is just Seth Meyers’ microphone.

5. Although we know this dog isn’t floating, I have to admit that I’m not exactly sure what is happening here.

Either the dog is dangling between the sides of this chair, it’s got the same seemingly impossible balancing skills that cats and mountain goats do, or there’s a pillow on this chair that’s the same color as it.

The answer is up to you, I guess.

6. This serene sunset scene is as beautiful as it is hard to figure out.

But you’ll see that it gets a little clearer when you look at this photo upside down. Apparently, both the bike and the scenery are just reflections in the water next to those rocks.

7. You don’t know how much I’d like to hang around a duck that big but once again, things are not what they seem.

While the way this photo is laid out makes it unlikely that it’s just closer to the camera than it seems, there’s something proportionally weird and artificial-looking about its head that suggests we’re not looking at a real duck.

Perhaps it’s a big plush that someone put next to this rink.

8. Although I’ve been mystified to see full tree trunks somehow dangle above their stumps, we’re not looking at that on a smaller scale.

Instead, this tall grass is completely intact. It’s just being crossed by a shadow that gives us the impression that it’s been cut in half.
