Nick, what you say reminds me of an idiosynchrasy I have of saying I grew up on Staten Island, but now I live in Maryland. I also get grinchy when I read journalists using phrases like " in Staten Island." What is it about Islands or insular objects like magical sea shells that coaxes people to be on them rather than in them. In any case, my cut and paste job fenestrated the shell and one could assume that Monet may be drifting through the shell. Best regards. -Art

What a great piece of trickery this one is. Congratulations! Wish I knew how you do it. "Hi!" from Saskatchewan. Theolfa

Theolfa, Thanks for the nice comments but the praise goes to Amelia Royan whose image of ambiguity (i.e. a sea shell that can look like a tunnel or a shell depending on your mind's eye) serving as an inspiration to me to alter it by pasting in one of her other images of a barge passing into a tunnel and my cat whose gaze speaks of enigma. I used nothing fancier than Microsoft Paint to cut out the small images and past them into the whole image. Best regards. -Art

Hi, Art! Thanks for the info. I don't have Paint because I have an iMac & a Macbook which use iPhoto so I can't play around with cutting & pasting, but even without the addition you made, the whole is a great optical illusion. Keep surprising me! Theolfa

Thanks to answer and participate to the UFO group.

Best regards.

Hi Chinappi, I am glad you like my little modification of Amelia's already ambiguous photo. Perhaps it does qualify for some 'twighlight zone' fantasy as you suggest in your UFO group. I'll look it up. *Does THIS ONE qualify? :D * -Art
