“wrinkled” ~ PhotoHunt

This was a tough theme. I almost gave up until I remembered taking these photos while in Santa Margherita Ligure…


And the two windows together…

  1. How amazing such a painting. Did you take it in a library? Anyway I think it’s a great entry two wrinkled faces behind the windows and the wrinkled curtains hanging overhead.


  2. That’s a wonderful sequence for the theme. Very interesting painting. Thanks for visiting Snap2 and yes the shot on the left is a horse. Hope you are having a good weekend.


  3. That really is an amazing painting. I already visited from Snap2 (I’m the wrinkled clothes half of that, ha) but came back via the link on my personal blog which I also appreciated you visiting. I’m glad I did because these windows are so interesting. For some reason I looked at them differently this go around and could see the whole or at least the two windows, and people, as part of a bigger work.


  4. Thanks everyone for your comments. I really did have a hard time with this theme until I remembered these photos I took. I enjoyed all of your posts also.
    I probably should have put an explanation on this post. The building is painted using the trompe-l’oeil technique which creates optical illusions, making windows, shutters, bricks, etc. appear to be three-dimensional. This technique is used in many of the towns on the Ligurian Coast. Trompe l’Oeil means “Trick the Eye”. I think there is an Italian word for this also, but am not sure of it right now.
