Chimney and Shingle Roof

Chimney and Shingle Roof (click to enlarge)

I took this image at the principal keeper’s quarters at Cape Hatteras Lighthouse.  This is actually part of a much larger, totally uninteresting image.  I just happened to shoot it while waiting for my wife to finish a tour of the double keeper’s quarters next door.  Just for giggles, when we returned home I started using Photoshop’s Crop tool to try and find the “image within the image”.

Notice that there are few, if any, lines in the shingles or the chimney parallel to any edge of the image.  I think the closest parallel line is the front edge of the chimney.  As I moved around the Crop tool in Photoshop, it really looked like the edges of the Crop tool were askew.  I had to check several times to make sure I had not hit some hidden, little used, option on the Crop  tool and that the edges of the tool were truly square to each other.

Look closer at the image above.  Does the lower left corner appear to be closer to the title text than the lower right corner?  It sure appears that way to me, but I know each corner is the same height from the text.  This is a pretty good optical illusion for a throwaway image.
