Optical Illusion

I saw this today, and thought it was freaking cool. :)

Regardless of what your brain tells you, the only colors in the following are:

Pink
Orange
Green


Don't believe me? Pull it into Photoshop and see for yourself. I'm totally geeking out over here.

Where does the blue come from?!?

Apparently, our brain combines the colors around the green together-- notice the pink is around the green where it looks blue; and the orange is around the green where it looks green. If you look at the very edges of the green where it's next to the pink, it starts to look blue.

And now ... my head hurts from trying to re-trick my brain.

That's really neat. Sometimes I think I just go to the eye doctor so I can just play with those "Where's Waldo for your eye" thingies!!

I opened the image in Gimp. My brain thinks Gimp, photoshop, and all other image editing software lies.

My brain is very stubborn.

No way!!!!!

By the way, I'm almost ready to bring my blog back to public...sent you an invite...but I've had to do some major tweaking, post and old photo removal, even changed my name.

I am officially ♥Boomer♥ -- though you may still call me MIMI, or "friend." :-) Hope you've been having a great week and are not too 'geeked out'.....
