Trompe L'oeil - Le Marais


It's little things like this nice artwork on the side of a building that makes Paris not only a moveable feast, but a feast for the eyes as well.

This would be good picture in canvas.You could stare it for hours and think what's real and what is not.VERY fascinating, very good.

I could look at that all day ... what a neat find

It's a wonderful find, but your composition has made it even better—love those lamps!

Virginia said...

Alexa,
The silhouette of the lamp did it for me! I think it almost looks like it could be part of the mural. Now if I could just PS that darn billboard out of the picture!

This is sooo excellent, V. The artwork I could do without. Take that away and you've got your own piece of art which could hang in one of the Paris museums!

Great shot Virginia and very unique!

What a great find!!! Thanks for all that walking in Paris to find these photos for us. And to think I was staying in the Marais and missed seeing this.

I like the colors very much.

My first thought was that the billboard was an intrusion but, having pondered, I think it really adds to the photo - so many different layers within the image.
