Before the Museum of Illusions closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, Florida firefighter Micah Amey ducked into the museum in February to escape the cold and check out the mind-boggling exhibits.

There was just one problem many of the illusions need two people to work, or at least one person to take photos.

Two employees offered to help him out. They followed him throughout the museum to line up the shots and snap photos of Amey in all of the displays.

"They ended up turning it around for me," he said of the two employees who helped. "Top-notch customer service."

Silva creates his photos through practical means while on location, instead of using photo-editing software. He spoke to Insider in 2020 about his process, explaining, "Most of the time it's very spontaneous when I'm walking through the city, traveling, or at the beach."

In a photo entitled "Complete the Puzzle," he saw a semi-collapsed sea cliff and found a rock that roughly matched both the cliff's color and shape, making it the perfect "missing piece."
