Straightening the crooked through the magic of photography



Hate crooked sign posts? A Tumblr page has the remedy for you: pictures of sign posts at an angle that make them look straight again. Because everyone should have a hobby, including graphic designer Onno Blase from Rotterdam.

People are sending him stuff from other places than The Netherlands, as Blase’s collection grows up to 540 pictures and counting. Blase says it’s a nice metaphor for being able to see things the way you want to see them, depending on how you look at them.

The trick is to have the sign post or pole in question in the middle of the picture for the best effect.
