Vanishing point / by Mario Mirabile

Our brains are very good at picking up and following  visual cues, and one of the strongest cues are converging lines. They literally act like funnels, drawing us into an image. Artists have long been aware of their power and used them to trap a viewer's attention and hold their interest. Our eyes will tend to follow the lines to their meeting point, and if there is something of interest at that point, so much the better.
