“painted”~ PhotoHunt

I decided to go with painted buildings that use the trompe-l’oeil technique, creating optical illusions, which make windows, shutters, bricks, etc. appear to be three-dimensional.

All but the shutters are painted in this photo.

This one really fooled me. I thought the shutters were real at first.

  1. Hello, I love every one of these. Don’t you just love how they paint windows and shutters where there is not one. I was so taken with that, the first time I realized I was looking at a painted window and shutters.
    Hope you have a great week end.

  2. Very colourful shutters. To me they looked real too. If you hadn’t written about the optical illusions I wouldn’t have noted the diference.

  4. These are wonderful collection of trompe-l’oeil. I saw many in France also. They would often add an painted ‘window’ to balance a wall of a building.

  5. A week late but who’s counting. Wonderful choice for the theme! Spotting the trompe-l’oeil on the buildings in SML is one of my favorite things to do while there.
