The flowers just look so real!


It's really amazing how real they can make artificial flowers these days. Those are beautiful.

A good few years ago, the Madeleine in Paris was shrouded in screens like that, while restoration work was carried out. It's such a good way to disguise what might otherwise be an eyesore.


Both are amazing illusions. That's a much better way to cover restoration work than billboards with ugly ads.

Have a great weekend!


I hope you weren't too disappointed when you found out that what you were seeing in the chapel wasn't real. As it is, from the photo as well as real life distance, it sure can fool!

Great take on the "artificial" theme.


Lovely photos! And they both look real:the flowers and the altar!


I love your photos, Jerry! Such a great expression of this week's theme!


lovely photos! the flowers look real far. and that "chapel" amazed me. i really thought it's one.

thanks for the visit!


trompe-l'oeil, but I don't know the Italian word for it.


The chapel screen was very well done. It would have surprised me also.

Hi Jerry, great photos and take on this week's theme. Those floweres do look so real and they have them in the pots just like they do the real ones. And the chapel screen is cool. I agree with the others that it is far better than looking at the construction.

Enjoy your Sunday.


Thanks Kathy. I still can't believe that the flowers were fake - they reallu did look real.


Brilliant, Jerry! In both photos, the subjects look remarkably real.


It is true Sandra - EVERYTHING (evn fake things) IS better in Italy!
