Seeing is not believing
Odd accidental optical illusion as I got out of the car this morning: I love how the converging lines seem to pull the bottom right corner of the photo upward, making the bottom margin seem crooked, slanting upward as it goes to the right. Looking at it makes me feel queasy. I want to grab it and just straighten it out. And yet the margin is perfectly straight. I had to pull grid lines over it a couple times to double check that I hadn't somehow cropped it at an angle. And I still can't help but see it as crooked. Seeing is not believing.
