Palm Tree Shadow Optical Illusion is a cleaver way to raise awareness about saving trees.  The post to the right side of the pictures reads “Nothing can replace a tree” but yet the shadow looks nothing like a post.  This one is a little obvious, with the difference in shadows that the palm tree was painted, but never the less till a cool illusion and a good way to send a message.  For some more Tree optical illusions check out the Science world Beaver Trees, the Dieing Plant corpse or the Rubin Freshness Bag Optical Illusion.

Creative Advertising – Street ads

Creative ads are everywhere these days, its almost a necessity to have eye catching advertisements in order to be seen these days.  Everywhere you look these days is an advertisement in one way or another. This street ad I found to be fairly clever. The statue underneath is being rebuilt, and these nice advertisers are flipping the bill! It no matter which way you look at the tarp around the statue the image appears to blend into its surroundings.  Just think if you can sell ads on a tarp while you chisel away a new statue you can sell ads anywhere!

Absolut Thessaloniki Advertisement

Absolut Thessaloniki Advertisement is a birds eye view of the city Thessaloniki  in Greece.  The optical illusion of the absolut bottle is how Aristoteles square, the city block is actually shaped; this photo was not manipulated in any way what so ever.  This awesome shot was taken by Andy Glass from an advertisement firm working with Absolut. If you don’t believe me look up Aristoteles square in Thessaloniki Greece on google earth to check out the origin of this amazing photo ad.

Falling Down Stairs Optical Illusion

Falling Down Stairs Optical Illusion is one of those creepy and some what morbid warning optical illusions much like the drowned kid illusion.  The lady at the bottom of the stairs looks very realistic and im sure has startled many shoppers approaching the escalator. High resolution stickers like this the walk into glass ad or the anti drinking and driving ad can make some great 3D images that look very realistic.
