In the photo at right, a 14-foot Christmas tree appears to be crashing through the roof of a one-story house in Seattle's Magnolia neighborhood.

Homeowner Patrick Kruger created the illusion by cutting a 14-foot tree into two pieces and attaching the top 6-foot section is to a piece of plywood that's bolted to the roof.
