shemp hates it when I do this

I like taking pictures of square things from an angle and then using photoshop to unskew the lines. I should be reflected in one of these windows, but I’m not!

I don't get it but it's lovely anyway

I gotta admit, it does look good…

Dad: Here's what's going on. I was down at street level and pointed the camera up at this building. Because of the angle at which I took the picture, the lines framing the windows weren't parallel. They were converging due to perspective. (Like when you look down a long straight road in the desert and the double yellow lines appear to converge on a single point.) In other words, you could tell from the original photo that I wasn't directly in front of the windows because of how the windows were skewed. So I stuck the picture in Photoshop and used the editing tools to stretch the image out in such a way as to make it look like I was viewing the windows dead on instead of at an angle. Had I actually been viewing the windows in such a way, you would have been able to see my reflection!

Shemp: I'm glad to hear you're joining the Dark Side (or at least giving it a sentence with an ellipsis).
