P1410501 -The Original

Thanks to all of you who ventured a guess at yesterday's puzzle. I enjoyed all of your answers and shared enthusiasm immense. I will show you this shot, which is the untouched original shot as taken with my trusty point and shoot. The first answer is that this panel was actually a fairly functionless decarative accent to a wall in a fancy outdoor mall in the Los Angeles area adjacent to Bevery Hills. The second answer, as you can likely tell from this photo, is that I didn't nothing to the original photo except turn it into black and white, because I thought that the contrast showed off the lines a little better. So congratulations to those of you who guessed a bathroom. I never would have thought it looked like a bathroom wall in a million years. So you are obviously sharper than me. (Though that's not too hard.) But I believe most everyone missed the fact that I converted the photo to black and white and just assumed I had taken it that way. You all thought that the trick must have lied in creating the pattern. But the pattern is actually exactly the way I found it. Thanks to all for playing along with me.
ha - dare I say I'm an old pub drinker from way back? ... I did think you had converted to bw but didn't think that had any real bearing on the patter which I thought you had distorted or enhanced somehow so well done you for the fun!

A work remembering the Manieristic masters, anamorphosis, distortion and all the like... The architect was a fan of Parmigianino!

Good grief! I’m the world’s worst visual problem solver. This does look so “40’s California” to me.

I thought it was BnW! But when I looked closely, I convinced myself that I saw color!

OMG this is quite extraordinary! I'd love to see what this looks like with a view to the whole room! That's an optical illusion like nothing I've ever seen before and I can't imagine the brilliantly taunting mind that created those lines and the pattern!!!
