April Fool!

April 1st is celebrated all around the world as April Fool's Day or All Fool's Day. It is a day set aside for practical jokes and general foolishness. This week, in honor of April Fool's Day, I thought it would be fun to post a few my images that fool your vision and your mind.
The featured photos are of common subjects stripped down to show only their basic design elements in a visual pleasing way. (Also known as 'Abstraction') Each image was made "in camera" (No Photoshop tricks applied) and composed in a way to make you stop, look, think, and wonder. 

I invite you to challenge yourself to see if you can identify the subjects in each photo.  If not, I hope you can go beyond identification and just enjoy the design of each one.  Have I succeeded in fooling you?

  1. Nice, Wendy - I can identify some of them but I love the simple, graphic compositions of them all whether I recognize them or not! Good going.
