Oct 11, 2017 – Wordpress Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

Glasgow, Scotland, taken on September 23, 2017

The Ames Room is one of my favourite optical illusions and a perfect demonstration of scale or…the distorted perception of scale. I wasn’t so convinced when I saw photos and videos of this illusion, but when I saw the REAL thing at the Glasgow Science Centre, I was quite awed. Here one twin appears to be a giant while the other looks like a midget…makes sense or no?! I’m still unable to explain how it works exactly but I guess that’s the fun part about optical illusions – you don’t need an explanation for it to be amusing!
