the look is awesome!
Thank you, Walter. How nice to see you here.
great shot, great title.
Thank you, very much, LFZ.
Is it ok to call you by your regular name?
i guess that’s very ok by now. i was a bit reluctant when i started the blog but since most of the people i interact with on wordpress seem to go by their real names i don’t really see a problem. but then again i quite like your ‘LFZ’
Cool. I was the same. For a long time I was only Syncopated Eyeball, then Ashley, then Ashley Scarlett and finally Ashley Lily Scarlett. I got braver and I also wanted to ‘own’ my work. Thanks, Peter/LFZ.
It would be great if you could take part in my “The Ambiguity Of Fences” Project
I went and had a look at your project. Thank you for the invitation. Yes, I would be very happy for you to include ‘The’ amongst the other fences.
Oh, and I like the project’s name.
This seems like such an acute comment. You can almost hear a breath or a beat. I think it’s really great work.
Why, thank you, Richard.
My eyes did one of those flip flop things as I was looking at this photograph–background, foreground? Very cool.
That’s great, Mrs Daffodil; that’s what I call ‘dancing eyes’. I love it when I find my own eyes dancing, so this is a lovely compliment you give me.
Re-thinking what I just said. Again. What I call dancing eyes is more like eyes jumping from one spot to another to another.
It’s not so much the eyes moving, it’s a switch in what they see. A simple example is the image of a vase (or is it two faces in profile facing each other?) see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rubin_vase, but there are some amazing drawings that use this illusion.
It’s called figure ground reversal.
Yes, I realised what you meant after my first reply.
I didn’t know what is was called, though, so thanks for that, Mrs. Daffodil.
There’s something so wonderful about the illusion created by the distance that cart is set-back (to me, anyway)…
the fence almost looks like it could be a curio-shelf (filled with miniatures)…
I think what you call a curio shelf, I call a shadow box, of which I have a few on my walls.
There’s a shop nearby that sells miniture shopping trolleys, about 12 cm long, that I’ve been coveting for ages.
Aside from the really cool illusion, it’s also an effective color image with plenty of detail everywhere.
Your radar for locating satisfying color relationships is really strong, Ashley.
Oh, another fine compliment!
Thanks very much, John. Your comments are always much appreciated.
Really, thank you very much, kind commenters. You all have given me quite a lift today.
Like a glimpse into another world
It’s starting to remind me of Paul Auster’s dystopian ‘In the Country of Last things’, where everyone has to scavenge, and a shopping trolley is a much coveted article.
Another great one, Ashley! This fascinates me – it makes you really look and it reveals itself slowly with incredible details.
Thanks, Karen. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the response to this one.
Well done ! This is the definite article.
Haha ha! Good one, Joseph!
I’ve come back to this one a few times and that’s got to be a good thing It’s just a great shot. Thanks for sharing..,. Best wishes, N
That’s an excellent compliment, thank you very much, N.
