Painted/ Photo Hunter

Trompe de loiel - Jackson's Point, Ontario

This week's Photo Hunter challenge: painted

Someone must have thought the side of this building looked boring as a plain white wall so they painted on a window.

Trompe de L’oiel ("Trick of The Eye”) are paintings that create illusions. I hope you were fooled for at least a second or two.

Fooled me for a minute...I thought they were windows. Great eye and great shot!

Fun! What a novel idea. Better than plantings to disguise that side of the building.

That is fabulous -- I was definitely fooled. I could have seen it easier IF the shape above it at the roofline hadn't been made that way. Looks perfectly natural to me!

see you there! said...

What fun! Someone sure has a sense of humor.

What a clever idea and if you have not mentioned it i will really think that's a real window. :)

Happy week-end!

I like it. I have a bare wall on the side of my house, maybe I should try this.

YTSL said...

I wasn't fooled but have to say that the house looks like it's got eyes! ;b
