Illusion?

Tree Trunk and Printed Canvas Backdrop, Charleston, SC  © Doug Hickok


You might think this scene looks a little unusual. Something is not quite right. Well, that's because the flowery meadow with blue sky and cloud is actually a canvas mural on a fence around a construction site. The only real bit of nature is the tree trunk in front.

  3. esperemos que algún día no tengamos que poner grandes murales falsos frente a nuestros ojos para recordar lo que era la Naturaleza. El hombre solo es capaz de realizar burdas copias de la Naturaleza, aunque parezcan reales es sólo plástico. buena entrada para la reflexión

  5. Well spotted. The slight pattern on the blue wall is disconcerting when you think it is the sky.

  9. Ha, ha! Looks amazing with those colour contrasts. Now would I have figured it out if you hadn't told us, Doug? The "sky", I think so, but look as I may at this size on the screen, the flowers look genuine enough to me.
