More Optical Illusions and Double-Takes 5

Here is a wide range of images that are some sort of illusion. Types of optical illusions, also referred to as visual illusions, include literal illusions, physiological illusions, and cognitive illusions. Those three classifications continue to break down even further, but I’m not here to give a course on optical illusions. Just to show them and enjoy. Also mixed in the batch are photos that mess with your mind simply because of the camera angle when the image was taken.
