Optical Illusion

Where: Matsumoto Japan



Between Meeting: Waiting for Taxi






I was waiting for a taxi to take me from my hotel in Matsumoto to Epson’s main office in Hirooka.  I spotted an interesting connection between the red stripes of a traffic barrier and a red square across the street.  When people walked by, depending on an individual’s gait, I noticed an illusion where a person’s ankles seemed in the wrong position due to the chevron shape on the barrier



I made a series of exposures as people walked by.   This image best illustrated the illusion.
