Have you seen this illusion making its rounds on the Internet?
A photo of a car park has left thousands of Facebook users fooled after it was posted with the caption: ‘All is not what it seems’.
Social media users have been analysing the photos for a week desperately trying to solve the apparent illusion after it was posted by Greg Brookman in May.
It’s since been shared more than 6,300 times, with some speculating on what the illusion could be, and others going crazy not being able to find it.

Guesses have ranged from the illusion being a floating car to a ghost in the back of another vehicle, while others are seeing upside down sailboats and a flight deck of an aircraft carrier.
Thousands have shared the post claiming to have found the illusion – but what is it really?
Apparently, it’s nothing.
That’s right – it turns out there’s actually no illusion at all and people have just been left staring at a photo of a car park for absolutely no reason. It’s just a stock photo.
The video explains: “It’s none of these [answers]. It’s just a car park.”
The clip says that the ‘illusion’ worked because of the recent ‘brick wall illusion’ and adds that jumping on the bandwagon of the recent craze is how he trolled ‘hundreds of thousands of thousands of people’.
Kind of a dick move, but also kind of genius.
