Yes but it's crooked relative to what's in the picture. And if you're saying you were level, then we're left with assuming the backdrop is crooked/not parallel. There's nothing in those pictures that are truly level to compare to. Do you have any other examples?

Maybe I'm missing what you're saying, but that's not a backdrop......it's a church and the church is not crooked. The altar was not crooked. I apologize if I'm missing what you're saying and everybody else is getting it.

Can you post a picture of yourself? Maybe you are listing a bit and haven't noticed it. I could show the picture to my chiropractor.

Hmmmmm........that could be possible. Now that I think of it I recently moved before my last two photo shoots. 3 bedrooms full of furniture, living room, & dining room. If I threw something off this could be true. I sure hope not though.

If you don't have a tripod try placing the camera on a step, railing, table or other flat surface that is level and take several photos and post back with your findings.

My sister, the professional baker and cake decorator once told me that my camera takes great pics. My reply was that I thought her oven baked great cakes.:lol:

I want some popcorn too. Should be interesting to see what happens when the camera is set on a level object.

You could try to level the horizon in the viewfinder and snap a pic. Works if your stairs are crooked like mine

Where are you located? You may have to move depending on your earth position. As you said, at one point things were straight. Check below illustration and it should become clear.

The problem is probably due to gravitational lens effect, capable of bending (lensing) the light from the source, as it travels towards the observer. Do you have a preponderance of pyramids or obese people in the vicinity, or maybe you have put on weight yourself?

This theory can easily be tested by attaching a superconducting gravimeter to your camera although you may have trouble adapting it to your flash mount or finding one on Craigs List.

I thought about what Chet said. If you bought your camera out-of-state then I think you might need to send your camera to Canon for a latitude calibration. Costs about $125

I don't know why the OP is posting here. His camera is obviously a Nixon.
