Is it possible to built this triangle or is it just an optical illusion?

illusion_13If you take a look at the following  picture , you should now it is not animated.  Your eyes are making it move.  To test this, stare at one spot for a couple seconds and everything will stop moving.  Or look at the black center of each circle and it will stop moving.  But move your eyes to the next black center and the previous will move after you take your eyes away from it.

Greek philosopher Plato wrote of the legendary city of Atlantis, that sunk to the bottom of the ocean.  Now photographer Andreas Franke has created a similar mythical underwater world for a new exhibition - but you can only see it with your scuba gear on.

Divers can Only Access the Exhibition

by Boat from Key West, Florida

Armed with his camera, Mr Franke dove down to the Vandenberg, a United States missile tracking ship that sunk in 2009 off the coast of Key West, Florida, and used the spectacular images he took as a canvas for a surreal civilization that never existed.

When we relegate ourselves to the position of reflection within the mind, when we look at ourselves in the light of thought, we have the ability to discover that our life has been greatly filled with beauty.  Other times we  may find another message within our own snapshots.

When we review our photographs, we often find coincidental themes that tell a different story to what the picture was intended to illustrate and memorialized.

Bronze medalists four years ago, the US team could practically feel their first gold since 1984 after finishing No. 1 in qualifying, with captain Jon Horton jokingly asking if they could claim their prizes. But everyone gets a do-over in team finals, and whatever momentum the Americans had evaporated when Danell Leyva and John Orozco fell on pommel horse, their second event. The Chinese won their second straight Olympic title in men's gymnastics and third in four games in a rout Monday, making fools of everyone who wrote them off after a dismal performance in qualifying. It took five minutes and a video review to sort out the silver and bronze medalists after Japan questioned the score of three-time world champion Kohei Uchimura on pommel horse, the last routine. Japan jumped from fourth to second after judges revised Uchimura's score, bumping Britain down to bronze and Ukraine off the medals podium.

The new Harry Potter tour is as wonderful up close as it is on screen.  The Harry Potter franchise may have drawn to a close, but Warner Brothers are not about to let their billion dollar boy wizard fade away. The latest money-spinner is the Harry Potter Studio Tour, offering fans a behind-the-scenes look at how the films were made.

The studio tour in London features all the original sets, stunning costumes, props and animatronics, and there's no doubting that Potter aficionados will love what they see here, because it is the real deal.
