The Ames Room is one of my favourite optical illusions and a perfect demonstration of scale or…the distorted perception of scale. I wasn’t so convinced when I saw photos and videos of this illusion, but when I saw the REAL thing at the Glasgow Science Centre, I was quite awed. Here one twin appears to be a giant while the other looks like a midget…makes sense or no?! I’m still unable to explain how it works exactly but I guess that’s the fun part about optical illusions – you don’t need an explanation for it to be amusing!

Ooh, Shiny! Buzz – oh look, it’s a bee! Bees always manage to catch my attention, often sidetracking me from wherever I am going. They are such graceful creatures and their romance with flowers is one of the most elegant things in the world. When they stay still and pose for me cooperatively, I can’t help but admire the wonders and powers of nature. Beautiful!

The castle in Conwy was an impressive structure looming over the entire town of Conwy, and it looks even more majestic from a distance from the top of the city walls. Now THIS is what a castle should be like! Amazing!
