Keep in mind that each of the "gaps" between those lines is the same distance apart, so the region where the lines are curved inwards is "deeper".

Feynman explained it wonderfully (as he always does) by pointing out that if you drew a circle around the curved region, and calculated what the radius would be for that circle, upon actually measuring it you would come up with an excess radius!
