The Escher-esque image is proof of a very smart use of the 360 panorama; it was shot with a Ricoh Theta (a 360 degree camera!) and a selfie stick.

“I developed it using Lightroom and straightened it using Hugin but it’s the full 360×180 equirectangular panorama image. I see people’s faces drop when I pull out the selfie sick but I am just using it as a lightweight monopod.” — looeee2
