Pisa Tower Illusion

It seems Jean-Fran├žois Capdet from Saleilles is a fellow European :) He mailed me two photos I’m placing as we speak. It’s Pisa Tower photographed under two different angles. Some of you probably browsed our full archive and found original Pisa Tower Illusion, some of you that didn’t read carefully: We have all heard (or seen) about famous leaning tower of Pisa, but this awareness doesn’t make the illusion less interesting! If you look at the first photo you will get the opinion that the doorway (the arch) is leaning left, but when you see second photo, you’ll understand that the tower is originally leaning. The second picture is inside.

  1. Guys, the point is that in the first photograph, the tower of Piza looks vertical and the building and archway appear tilted. In the second photo, the truth is revealed to us- the archway and building are in fact vertical, whilst the tower of Piza is in fact ‘leaning’.

  2. The illusion is not that the arch is leaning, you can’t see the left wall of the arch so you can’t really know. The illusion is that the other rectangular building is leaning.

    I don’t live in Pisa or I would try this myself, but someone should make the following illusion:

    Stand so that the tower is leaning towards or away from you so it doesn’t lean to the side. Then take a picture with the tower in the background with someone in the foreground standing like they are “pushing” against the tower. It will seem like they straightened the tower.

  3. hah! that’s different :D

    ps: nobody likes a negative nancy mr.”he didn’t even do it right. the tower’s still leaning” :P

  4. WOAH OMG OMG OMG!!!

    SCROLL SLOWLY UP AND DOWN JUST A LITTLE BIT EACH TIME WHILE LOOKING AT THE 2nd PIC ON THE BOTEM BY IT SELF.

  5. 1. its showing how the freaking building is leaning you retard

    2. its leaning tower of PIZA thats piza not pizza.

  6. i went to Pisa 2 years ago, the grounds in front was full of people taking the classic..”im tryin to push the tower straight photo”!

  7. This is a really good picture, but not an illusion. Don’t hate, but the camera has just been flipped on an angle. Otherwise, great illusion!!!!!!
