An Unintentional Illusion



This photo was taken in the fall of 2008 in Poznan, Poland.

I’m not going to say what the illusion is yet, because I want to see if anyone else notices it.

  1. My guess is that the pale blue corner of the building on the left seems to be behind the building on the right, but it obviously isn’t.

  2. I am struggling to see it – does it have anything to do with the people looking up and their size relative to the statue? Probably not but it certainly made me look closely at your image – neat trick 🙂

  4. I spotted the couple right away but I didn’t think it was the one 🙂 … obviously northum (something) got it right. And I like the sculptor design, I yet have to read about Poznan though. 😦

  5. My brain obviously isn’t working today. I though “what! Poznan fell in 2008?” That isn’t even funny. Love the photo though and would very much like to see more of Poznan.

  6. I see two: the lamp in the back looks like water is trickling out of it and the other is the couple looking up making it appear that the statue is gianormous 🙂

    • I didn’t notice the “water” coming out of the lamp before. Good eyes! But you’re right about the couple who appear to be looking up in wonder at the statue, when they’re actually standing far behind it and looking up at the building.

  7. I loved Poznan’s main square too – is this where the photo was taken? I didn’t get chance to see much more, so am looking forward to your upcoming Poznan story!

  8. It looks like the female statue is holding an ice cream cone, which gave me a giggle but was not an illusion. The tiny people are interesting, and I had noticed the crying lamp, although they must be lights or something. It was worth the study. Great photo!
