Photo Spot: A Pictorial Study in Perspective

I like to play with perspective when I take pictures. Sometimes that means the art of showing objects so as to give the right impression of their height, width, depth, and position in relation to each other, and other times it’s to play with the viewers way of regarding something.

This image is an example of the latter. At first glance, it may appear to be a stone walkway. But upon closer examination, or the proper perspective, the true reality is revealed:

To make this warping of perspective possible, I shot an extreme close up of a stone wall. The illusion of a stone walkway only lasts for a brief moment until one notices the light fixture.

Such a study may not yield a frameable image for one’s wall, but it does create a fun, albeit brief, diversion from reality!
