78/366 [Optical Illusion]

Optical illusion
Took several pictures in the vicinity of this building in Docklands before pointing the camera to the sky and capturing this view. I reshot because I thought it was something I had done to distort the image when I was taking this photo but it is simply like those old fashioned drawings in psychology books designed to demonstrate that we can’t always believe what we think we see. Those orange bands across the building are perfectly straight and parallel. The staggered black and white rectangles have made them look curved.
