Art Depends On Your Point Of View

"Banner Art" by John Banks / Imperial Beach CA

Whaaaaat? What trickery is this? No way that final shot is of the same sculpture. Is this TSG flexing his photoshopping muscles?

No, no photoshopping needed to reveal the "Art", all that's required is the "right" point of view. In our case, that would be looking at it from the east...about half a block away. I have to admit I fell down on the photojourno job a bit by not capturing a "full" image of the sculpture from that perspective. It didn't occur to me until later that the zoomed-in image didn't really do the piece justice. Luckily I found a nice a nice image from the half-decade dormant my_art350_blog, and have updated the post to better illustrate the nature of the ART in question. There are also several images on the artist's website.

(Now, I doubt jessicagrepe or anyone who knows her will ever stumble across this humble blog, but if they do, please note I gave full credit where credit was due)
