This week, “F” is for Fake. That’s right, like Orson Welles before me, what you see is not what you see at all. Enjoy.
I am only showing a portion of John Pugh’s mural on the back side of the Del Oro Theater in Grass Valley, California. At first glance you see a Utility worker reading an electric meter, when in fact it is just an illusion as the side view attests. I think that the shadow of the existing awning ‘sells’ the illusion as it falls across the ‘meter’.
I took these photos with my iPhone 5 and made edits in Snapseed.
