Reflections on a broken bicycle

Discussed/explained at Reddit.

Photo credit: Sylvia Mehnert, who photographed the bike in Copenhagen.


  1. The bike could be leaning to give the illusion of not being bent in the reflection.

  2. Hej, dear all, thank you for making my photo famous! I can answer all your questions. It is true...this is an optical illusion. It was really broken but but at a certain angle it is in the water around again ... it's that easy! I found the bike 3 month ago in Copenhagen and was really surprised about this joke! Much more fun with my photo. And thanks for like it! I'm really happy! Sylvia Mehnert

    1. Thank you, Sylvia. I've added an appropriate credit to the post.
