Sidewalk Chalk Artist

Photographing the sidewalk chalk art is a tricky business. You have to position the camera to be from the exact position for it to look good like this does. Similar to the other sidwalk chalk drawings, you must understand that for the perspective illusion to work, the drawing in real life is much more stretched out that you would think it is. In this example, it looks like the woman in the center with the stroller should techincally only be a few feet farther back from the the edge of the basin wall than say, the police officer. But due to using a wide-angle or fisheye lense, the perspective on the people is also slightly distorted to enhance the effect.

This is one of thoese pictures that you can stare at for quite awhile, and it sure seems like many of those people could just take a step forward and dip their feet into the water. Quite an impressive chalk display! (Scroll down the page for a second sidwalk chalk picture.)

Next, here is a different fountain sidewalk chalk. Not quite as impressive as the one above, but still pretty incredible nonetheless! Is that a minotaur in that picutre? Check out the hooves on him! Oh well, I guess it just goes to show that just about every living creature - no matter how horrible - can be calmed and satisfied by a nice thirst-quenching cup of water.

Diamonds appear to be the same shade. But they're not!

Same Shade Diamonds

Wow! It will look like the diamonds on the top are much darker than the diamonds on the bottom.

Perfect and printable! This is a very strong optical illusion, and is even noticeable in the small image to the left. Doesn't it look like the top row is considerably darker than each successive row?

moving red spiral

Moving Red Spiral
Sometimes, while I'm just playing around in Photoshop, something appears, as if by magic. This illusion was one of those that just jumps off the page.

It's a large red spiral on a purple background that appears to jump and move. Works better for some people than others, but if you like the moving illusions, you'll love it! Although this small image might move a bit as you read these words, the larger versions are even better!

Moving Backgrounds

It moves! You must zoom in to get the full illusion. You'll see the rings rotate, even though they are not moving at all.

We've created several sizes so you can use as your desktop background.
