We have another optical illusion type post to debate. You’ll remember the infamous viral debate of the color of “the dress?” Was the dress white and gold or blue and black? Not sure it was ever proven but there was an explanation for it. It had something to do with your brain and wave lengths and different activity in each side of your brain. But now, we have another debate that’s not as easy to explain.

The woman goes by @wheatpraylove on IG, posted the picture with this caption: “I went wedding dress shopping and the fabric of reality crumbled. This is a real photo, not photoshopped, not a pano, not a Live Photo. If you can’t see the problem, please keep looking and then you won’t be able to unsee it. Full story in my highlights (THE MIRROR) Please enjoy this glitch in the matrix/photo that me nearly vomit in the street.” She then went on to explain the truth behind the photo in a highlight on her IG stories.

She says she took the photo to an Apple store and talked to a “genius” named Roger who was able to explain what happened. It had something to do with taking pictures is like taking a series of images from left to right and at the exact moment the picture crossed her back, it raised her arms and created an image that only 1 out of a million would create. You can get her complete story by going to her IG story.

This made us think, what about all of the other optical illusion photos that have been debated for years and are still being debated today. Let’s revisit some of them shall we. Are we seeing things or are these just great photo shopped images.
