Your eyes can be easily deceived. Your eyes and mind can even be tricked into thinking that a black and white photo is actually a color photo. This was confirmed by an optical illusion that went viral this week on Twitter.
Take a quick glance at this photo. It appears to be a color photo with everyone wearing different colored shirts. However, the photo is actually black and white with a colored grid that causes the entire photo to appear colored.
Your mind is predicting what the photo should look like based on previous data and experiences. The grey-colored shirts appear to be red, green, blue and yellow. The tweet went viral and has over 40,000 Likes.
Here is another color-less photo that appears to be full of color because of the addition of the colored grid.
