"wrinkled" ~ PhotoHunt

PhotoHunters

This was a tough theme. I almost gave up until I remembered taking these photos while in Santa Margherita Ligure...

Painted wrinkles! How creative! Good photos for today's theme.

My Photo Hunt is up, too! Please visit and leave your link. :) http://newyorktraveler.net/photo-hunters-wrinkled/

Would that be a painting? Pretty cool.

How amazing such a painting. Did you take it in a library? Anyway I think it's a great entry two wrinkled faces behind the windows and the wrinkled curtains hanging overhead.

cool windows.. hehehe

That's a wonderful sequence for the theme. Very interesting painting. Thanks for visiting Snap2 and yes the shot on the left is a horse. Hope you are having a good weekend.

That really is an amazing painting. I already visited from Snap2 (I'm the wrinkled clothes half of that, ha) but came back via the link on my personal blog which I also appreciated you visiting. I'm glad I did because these windows are so interesting. For some reason I looked at them differently this go around and could see the whole or at least the two windows, and people, as part of a bigger work.

Oh those are beautiful wrinkles! I love the trompe-l'œil on the buildings in Santa Margherita.

Have a great weekend!

Those are very cool and perfect for this theme! Hope you're having a great weekend!

Great take on wrinkles and I love these paintings.

That's a good one.

Those are definately the best form of human wrinkles to feature! *smile*

Thanks everyone for your comments. I really did have a hard time with this theme until I remembered these photos I took. I enjoyed all of your posts also.

I probably should have put an explanation on this post. The building is painted using the trompe-l'oeil technique which creates optical illusions, making windows, shutters, bricks, etc. appear to be three-dimensional. This technique is used in many of the towns on the Ligurian Coast. Trompe l'Oeil means "Trick the Eye". I think there is an Italian word for this also, but am not sure of it right now.

that's such a lovely shot! :)

Kim:

Totally cool!
