Photo Observation

From: linked on, saved on my computer, not sure where the original link is from.

3) THEME: Surreal

4) DESCRIPTION: What is most surreal about this image is that nothing about is faked or photoshopped. I was looking at another image of a man walking near a flying bird, where the shadows had been doctored to look like a knight and a dragon, but I choose this instead because these are created pieces of art that are photographed as they exist in the real world. The light in these images creates a shadow that feels surreal and unnatural because without that light, I would not know that the thing I was looking at would cast that shadow. Most objects cast a shadow that is a distortion of the object itself. In these works, the object is the distorted image, and the light and shadows create the object itself.
