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.
