Default Photo challenge 199 'Optical illusions' {July 8, 2014}

Photo challenge 199.....'Optical illusions'. I have really been falling down on posting the next photo challenge. Please forgive me. I've had a bit of a brain fog in regard to finding a new and exciting challenge. Then, this morning, on my walk, I noticed what I thought was a rabbit, and really turned out to be a dog excrement baggie, that the owner was going to pick up on her way back to the car with her pup. So, today's challenge will be to photograph things that from afar look different from what they really are. Does this make any sense?


Photo Challenge Rules:
~ Have FUN with this! There are no right or wrong photos.
~ Take as many pics as you want, share the few you like best.
~ Please share only current photos, taken after the challenge was issued.
~ We CANNOT upload our photos to the SCS galleries. You may upload them as an attachment or host them from your blog or any online photo hosting site. Just provide the direct link to the photo in your post and also make sure that it is not from a password protected album.
~ Just a reminder that we are a family-friendly site if you are sending others off this site to view photos in an album hosted elsewhere.
~ Please jump in and join us in the photo challenges at any time!
~ HAVE FUN

No worries about falling down on the job, Ina - you know I am the same, too! Or else I have an idea and then can't find the time to get photos for it.
This sounds like fun, and oh yes, I know exactly what you're talking about. More than once I've been sure I've seen a bird only to find out it was something else. In fact, I know where there is something I often mistake for a heron...but whether I can get a photo depends on what the tides are like over the next couple of weeks!

That must have been hilarious to see! I didn't know you had a cat as well as the dog.
I'm still waiting for the right tide conditions! !

I like those lake photos!

Bummer, the tide was right, but there must have been a clean-up in the river because the shopping trolleys and other bits and pieces were gone - so was my planned photo.

I will have to remember to take my camera tomorrow and try to join in this challenge.
I've only just found a picture of shells, I will still post it in the last challenge as it's a photo of a building in Salamanca with shells over the outside, not sure what the significance is though.

Very weak, but with my shopping cart/heron having been removed from the river this is all I could find, even though I walked all round town with my eyes wide open one day last week.
This is along the river, on the way to work. Truly, the first time I saw it I thought it was a wooden pallet which must have got swept into the river in one of the floods, and got stranded at low tide. But it stayed for days and days - and when I looked through the camera I can see that it's actually some sort of gate or sluice or something. It's just in front of the new brewery, so maybe it's something to do with that. It could be a flood defence or something because I think the lower yard in the brewery got slightly flooded a while back. Must google, if I can find the time, and see if I can find anything out.

Sabrina, those are great photos of the sluice, especially the last one, showing it partially under water.
I have one more for this challenge. Neighbours down the road have all these blue chairs lined up, overlooking the lake. They look really cool and this morning when it was very foggy, I got a shot of them, looking like they are on the edge of a high cliff whit nothing beyond them but air.

Ina - that is amazing!! The fog must have so dense. It really does almost look as if they were facing a wall, or a screen!!

Blue screens of death aren't always terminal, LOL - I've been nursing my PC along for almost a year now, LOL. But you're probably better off with a new one and I'm sure you'll get used to it soon.

Lynn, it takes awhile to learn how to use the Windows 8. BTW, I love your take on the word eight, changing it into 'hate', because that's what it is really like. I still don't have any idea what all this windows 8 can do, as I don't use the apps at all. I had to get my tech support to tell me what to do to retrieve my photos. My son-in-law couldn't help me, and that's saying a lot, as he is a computer genius.

This is sort of the reverse of an optical illusion.
If you only saw the close-up, you'd think I was on a beach somewhere...or at least in an estuary.

And then I zoom out and you can see that I am right in the middle of the city . I love that I can stand with my back to the mainline train station that serves the country, and see swans, herons, cormorants, gulls and even sometimes some moorhens. I've taken videos that you'd think were along a river in the country - until you listen to the soundtrack and hear the traffic and trains.
