An optical illusion. The horizontal lines are in fact straight as can be seen when zoomed in. The phenomenon is called The café wall illusion.
The key is that the stripes or mortar separating the horizontal layers must be of an in between shade.
Wow! Thanks Marlene! That's so nice of you!
Enjoy your spring as we're enjoying our autumn.
Very good contrast between the old tram and the facade of the building. Greetins, Jordi
Thank you so much! I was very lucky to have that tram pass by at that moment. There are not many of the old ones left, most of them driving around are modern and grey. The contrast just wouldn't have been the same.
No doubt: it's a great photo. Like it!
nice shot like
Thank you Christiane, and you're welcome :-) I had great pleasure browsing through your gallery.
Have a wonderful Sunday, Paul
Thank you very much! Nice of you to be so assured :-)
Thank you Fardin! I appreciate that.
Thanks very much Fábiánffy!
Great contrasts again Paul! Quite different from the 'lamp post photo', but equally beautiful if not even more beautiful.
Prachtige opname Paul, de oude tram en het nieuwe gebouw. LIKE! Groeten Berend
Amazing composition Paul! Breathtakingly beautiful! Big LIKE!
Best wishes, Ria
Excellent composition, well seen !
Great picture, Y/S!
Thanks for the praise and appreciation!
Deze oude trams zie je in Adelaide niet meer, tenminste, ik zag er geen een. Sydney heeft ze al lang niet meer, zijn ook alle rails weg. Gelukkig dat ze in Melbourne nog rijden want ze geven wel sfeer vind ik.
And a big Thank You to you Ria!
That green pole was begging for a green counterpart to come into the frame :-)
Best wishes, Paul
Patience is sometimes handsomely rewarded, but luck also plays a major role. Thanks very much Annemarie!
Warm regards, Paul
Wow! That's very kind of you T.M! Thank you so much, I do appreciate that!
Warm greetings, Paul
