  • Great picture. What we’re looking at is actually 3 archways. One in the background and the 2 illusion producing arches in the foreground. The two up front were snapped at a great angle, producing the illusion.

  • I just spotted the fourth arch. So, we’re actually seeing at least four arches.

  • Actually you are looking through six arched windows

  • Actually, you’re all wrong. We’re actually looking through _27_ archways. Pretty amazing, huh?
