Beautiful Great Blue Heron’s Magical Feather
Red is grey and yellow white,
but we decide which is right,
and which is an illusion.
The feather shown in the top pane here is the same feather as that shown at bottom. Both photos were taken on the same day, with the same camera and lens, within minutes of each other. Only the background colors have been changed.
Some fascinating examples of ‘color illusions’ such as this can be found at Brain Den. Enjoy!
Thanks to Jen H and WordPress for the recent WPC Challenge: Magic. Is an optical illusion magic? Yes, in fact, many magic tricks employ optical illusions, as a quick internet search will reveal.
My Great Blue Heron photography has been featured in 3 one-woman shows at the Summer Street Gallery of The Natick Center for the Arts. In addition to the visual arts shown at the gallery, TCAN has a lively, dynamic lineup of upcoming performing artists.
A selection of my heron and flower photos is now available at the Five Crows Gallery in Natick, MA. Drop in and see the work of the many wonderfully creative artists who show there when you’re in the area.
Five Crows is on FaceBook. To give the gallery a visit, please click here.
Remember: Walk softly and carry a long lens.™
