ABC Wednesday--"U" is for "unsettling"

I like this floor pattern in downtown hallway where a friend lives, I really do, but I find it somewhat unsettling to walk on...which way are those little blocks going to tumble? :)

I agree, it makes me dizzy looking at it.

Makes me dizzy. Fun image.

Very dizzyfying! I have a picture of a floor exactly like that—it's in the doge's palace, in Venice.

Jacob said...

What a great photo! But, I'd probably fall on my keister trying to negotiate this hallway!

on dirait un casse tete chinois ;o))

Gaelyn said...

I like the pattern too. But, would not like to walk across that floor looking down. Made me dizzy just scrolling past.

I totally agree with James, one of THE coolest floors. Your photo of a section of it makes it all the more interesting.
I did a small wall hanging quilt on a sewing machine with one of the squares with these blocks. Still remember how time consuming the diagonal corners were to sew.

I'm with Louis le V... It looks like an Escher to me! Love this pattern...
