Simply an Illusion

Flickr user and Classic-Castle member 2 Much Caffeine has posted another entry for the CCCVIICastle of Illusion.

The set includes a photo detailing how he achieved the optical illusion without using a photo editing program. I am impressed with the amount of thought that went in not only to building this, but photographing and presenting it!

    There is a second optical illusion in front of the tree. This is a wonderful creation that show the playful, artistic, and creative thinking aspects that makes LEGO like no other medium. Awesome!

    Hey Caylin, thanks for the feature – much appreciated.

    I’ve always been a big fan of Escher drawings and had been kicking this idea around in my head for months now. The “Fantasy Castle” category of the CCC acted as a prompt to actually build it.

    Took until my third version before it turned it remotely okay!

    Spooky! I had to look REALLY hard at the image just to find the illusion and when I did, I almost fell out of my chair! Great job!
