Accidental Escher

This image, posted at reddit, plays with our minds like an M.C. Escher drawing. The bridge column divides the foreground and the background, so how do the workers seem to be in the front while their truck is in the background? It looks odd because we see the world in 3d, while a photo only renders it in 2d. What we don't see is the stereoscopic view that would give us a clue about how far away anything is from our eyes. In this case, the basket is on the end of a long boom, which is hidden from the camera. A simple sketch from redditor Bleoox shows us the scene from a different angle. -via Digg
