🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃🎃

Well, this year has been a big nasty trick on everyone and every day and has made a mess of our holidays.

This day, Halloween 2020 will not be much fun. We will not be doing anything – shutting our door, turning out the light, no candy, no trick-or-treating kids.

It’s sad, because Halloween is my favorite holiday.

I always like these ‘trick of the eye’ things, where you can try to see two different images. They are also called optical illusions.

Remember those Magic Eye pictures? Those are fun to see, too.

There are also those strange designs that seem to move when you stare at them. Makes your eyes feel funny with those tricks.

Here is a short exercise – see if you can pick out both images – or maybe you’ll be tricked!

Just Jot It January & Stream of Consciousness Saturday -SOCS – Movement  

The Friday Reminder for #SoCS & #JusJoJan Daily Prompt, Jan. 27th, 2018

Your prompt for #JusJoJan and Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: movement. However, don’t use the word “movement.” Choose some sort of movement, and base your post on that. Enjoy!

Today’s prompt that Linda has suggested is to write about movement, but don’t use that word. Thanks for an interesting prompt!

Here’s a different way of ‘looking’ at things.

I’m fascinated by optical illusions, especially those that seem to re-arrange themselves in the picture. Why does this happen? Is it a trick of the eye, or is it our brain  seeing something that isn’t really true? You know it’s a flat picture, yet you seem to see a weirdness start to happen.

Stare at this one for a little bit. What happens? Do you see little gray dots in between the squares, at the corners in the white space. I see them, and they seem to appear and disappear as your eyes scan the picture.

There are lots of these optical illusions you can find on the internet. This was one of many on Pixabay.
