Upside down



Notice anything odd about the above photos (other than they are upside down and of me)?

Okay, now let's turn them right side up and see if we notice anything odd now (other than they are photos of me)?

If you are observant, you will notice that the photo on the right, although right side up, has the eyes and mouth upside down. Yet when viewed side by side and upside down, you probably didn't notice the difference.

Okay, what do we learn from this? Well, not much, but it should teach you that if you are looking at things upside down, you might not be getting the complete picture.

Let's try another example:
Unless you have been living under a rock, you should recognize this upside down image as the Mona Lisa by Leonardo Da Vinci. Now let's turn Mona right side up:

So the next time you are out out at a bar hoisting a few with your friends and you sort of lose your balance and fall off from your bar stool. Just keep in mind that your upside down perspective of that amazingly attractive person you see across the room may be skewed. Beer gogs don't help either.

This has been a public service of Dizgraceland where we like to keep things on the up and up.



I think I have pretty much made my point here.

Chuckles!!!

I bet Mr. Da Vinci is turning over in his grave seeing the right side up imagine of the Mona Lisa ~winks~...

Very interesting how you do not notice the eyes or mouth in the upside pictures.

You are so amazing!

i failed!!! miserably!!! ohhhhh woe's me!!!

The very first test.."notice anything odd about the upside down pics" and then You flipped them over so we could study them.. welllllllllll Tim ID .. what i thought you wanted me to see was that you have about as much hair on the bottom end of your face as you do on the top end

oh well........... i was never very good at the "what's wrong with the picture" tests either..

Morningstar,
No worries. It wasn't really a test. It was just an excuse to put my face on the Mona Lisa. And I actually have much more hair on my head than on my face. It is the one trick age hasn't played on me. :)
