Caption: Distorted image of a ruler and pencil. The distortion has been caused by photographing the subject through a sheet of wavy glass. The uneven surface of the glass produces lens-like refraction of the image-forming light rays from the subject. The image is similar to the sort obtained by photographing down into shallow water.
