Big man on a bridge illusion

reallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreallyreally, really like optical illusions!

This is a picture of workers on the Brooklyn Bridge, taken in 1914 by Eugene de Salignac for the city of New York. But wait … why is the guy on the right so much bigger than the others? He’s not. It’s an optical illusion!

The person on the left has been exactly copied and also placed on the right of the photo. It’s an example of a perspective optical illusion.
