What Color Are These Strawberries?

This photo was created by Akiyoshi Kitaoka, a psychology professor.  This above photo contains no red pixels.  Hard to believe,  but the strawberries are not red. The strawberries are actually made of grey pixels, but because of a concept called color constancy, your brain is filtering the image as if it’s just colored under a different light.  “When you look around the world, the light that enters your eye is made of different wavelengths that come from both the pigments of the objects around you and the light that illuminates them.”   says National Eye Institute’s Bevil Conway.

So, you’re eyes can be tricked, when it comes to true colors of objects.
