Penrose Triangle

Active Weekly May 31st - June 7th: Illusion

 

Illusion is defined as something which deceives by making a false or misleading impression of reality. I want you to take this however you'd like. I love seeing a variety of photos. This could be an optical illusion or just something that may not be what it seems. You could even make a short story in your description to go along with your picture to explain what makes it an illusion (For example: having a picture of an innocent looking child and then explain that they are in fact a highly dangerous assassin). Get creative and have some fun!

 

WIT: I had to try this one. Its called a Penrose triangle. I was inspired by a version of this built with dice. I didn't have enough dice so I used some wooden blocks. This is a combination of two images merged together in PSE. The photoshop work took a few more steps than in should have because I wasn't exact enough in my set up of the blocks. i was close, but not close enough. Cropped and a curve adjustment layer added to boost contrast.
