Photo Challenges – Optical Illusions/Black and White

soldier black and white

Another winter day means time for one more  Wordpress Challenge. Today I’m taking part in Cee’s Black & White Challenge-Angles and Lines. I’m using a close-up of a wooden soldier that was in my collage of the Mullica Hill Alphabet posted on January 18th. I find many angles in these photographs.

When I took this photo I didn’t notice the cigar the soldier held  in his mouth. I studied the picture, trying to figure out exactly what made up the cigar. Hmmmm???? The question became: Was it really a cigar or something behind the soldier. What do you think?

Aha! Upon a closer look, the shadow told the tale.

Just an optical illusion after all. I’m still bamboozled by what is creating the illusion. I’ll have to visit the town again and take another look…soon!

    1. Another blogger commented and thought the “cigar” is a nail in a tree…I’m going back to the photo to take another look. Nothing like being fooled by your own photograph. Typical of me!!!
