As I was just about to give up, I found this interesting optical illusion to share with you today. There is nothing complex about this Wonky-Tonk building. It has it’s roof, doors and four windows. There are also two of the tenants in front of it… but wait! Why are the tenants so upset? Apparently they are puzzled by the upper right window of their house. The landlord explained to them there is nothing wrong with it, and that the both upper windows are exactly the same. Although they wouldn’t be much satisfied even if the windows were completely identical, but they are still puzzled how his statement can be true? It is more than “obvious” that the right window is leaning much more to the left, than the left window. Is it possible that the landlord was right? Let’s try and prove this: if you remember the leaning tower optical illusion that won the 1st place in 2007 optical illusion contest, you will see where this goes. Jump inside the article to see the further proof:
If we highlight and paint the right window in red, then cut it from the original image, we can easily move it around the house. What I did next, I made this slice semi-transparent and placed it over the left window. I have to admit I was too shocked when I saw that both windows overlap perfectly. How did the landlord know this from the beginning? Did he construct the building this way on purpose? This is for us to ask, and for landlord to know.
