World of the Bizarre

'Beach' optical illusion has been perplexing the Internet this week

Is this a beach... or something else ? Image Credit: Twitter
An optical illusion that has been doing the rounds for years has resurfaced once again on social media.
What do you see in this image ?

Initially, pretty much everyone will likely answer that they can see a night-time beach scene with the ocean waves lapping against the shoreline, a star in the sky and a boat off in the distance.

On closer inspection, however, things may not be quite as they seem.

This mind-bending illusion, which has been baffling people on social media for years, has a secret that might not even be obvious if you happen to know what to look for.
The 'beach', it turns out, is in fact an image of a car... yes, a car.

If you look closely, the 'sand' is in fact the ground beneath the car and the 'ocean' is the bodywork.

It can take some time to switch your perception from one to the other.

Can you see one or both of these interpretations ?

I can see it. I was initially thinking perhaps a side view of an aquarium, though that didn't seem quite right.  Photos like this are fun.
