Here's a great picture we have for you. The guy walking over the bridge is probably just out for a walk or on his way home from work. But what about his reflection? This guy must on his way to work!
The news of late has all been about the 'Fiscal Cliff', so we thought that we would put together an illusion of the 'now you see it- now you don't' variety. Lets hope the politicians see it before its too late! This illusion requires flash - not available on all devices.
This might look like the deadliest road in the world but in fact it just the Storseisundet Bridge in Norway. When seen from the opposite side all becomes clear.
Although this grey ball is totally opaque, the more you watch it the more it becomes transparent. You can keep watching as the animation repeats after ten seconds.

Beever first designs his work on paper. Once finalise a camera is placed at a distance from the art on the pacement which he returns to in order to observe the image through the lens a number of times, as the camera’s wide angled lens can create an optical illusion which distorts the actual size of objects, which aides in maintaining perspective.
Beever works as a freelance artist and creates murals for companies. He has worked in the United Kingdom, Belgium, France, the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Denmark, Spain, the United States, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Russia, and Portugal.
Besides this pavement art, Beever also paints murals with acrylic paints and replicas of the works of masters and oil paintings, and creates collages. Among his other work are drawings, usually themed around music.
In 2010, Beever released a book Pavement Chalk Artist, which includes photographs of many of his works from around the world. See more of Julian’s work here http://julianbeever.blogspot.com/
