Interesting image Charles, I see what you were going for.

I find the image playing tricks on my eyes as the bottom section (is that a roof?) seems to contradict the top and I'm not quite sure what I'm looking at.

Could I say 'mystifying'?

haha! It's a plaza. That circle just below his feet is a sewer cover and he's climbing steps. Look up images of "La Defence Paris."

Ah, that makes more sense. Now I have an understanding I like the image a lot more (less disconcerting in the mind).

For some reason as I look back at it my mind still thinks we are looking down on the subject before my brain resolves the image into what it truly is.

An illusion indeed!

Funny, because it's impossible for me to see anything but the reality!

Great illusion. My first thought was the subject was climbing bleachers.
