Who could ever tell that this is not a photo of a sunset?
Neither is this:
And who could tell that this is not a heart shaped carving in a tree?
The first photo is of my truck. Ok, it’s a photo of the windshield of the truck.
The second photo is also of my truck. It’s the back right fender. Yeah, you could tell that one wasn’t the real thing.
The third photo is of a tree. Well……. that’s only partially true. It’s where a branch was cut off of the tree – and reflected in a hand mirror.
So what does it matter if things aren’t as they appear?
