The Steam Locomotive

Where reality and make-belief meet ...

Mural Art in Vancouver - here a real trompe l'oeil that fools the eye into believing the scene is real .... the backs of a row of low shops on Grandview Highway - incorporating an old railline.

    : ))))))))) i'm smiling because i did mistake it for a "real train", when i saw it in the thumb, thinking you'd changed your subject and started a new series! glad to discover you'r still "into" murals! ; )) and what a great one this is!!! your composition with iron fence running through the shot and the steely car racing (or so it seems ; )) the steam engine makes it stand out and shine! hugs, sabine.

    Blimey that's amazing!!! From the thumbnail I thought it actually was a locomotive producing clouds of steam! It works because of the real railway line in the forefront and whoever painted the steam did a FABULOUS job, it is such a great picture.

    wow...this looks fantastic. Must have been a true master of his art who painted this so amazingly realistic in the wall.

    Wow, toll! Würde mich interessieren, wie es durch den Zaun durchfotografiert aussieht, vielleicht verliert es sogar an Wirkung, aber neugierig wär ich trotzdem ;-)

    Da kommt man fast schon in's Grübeln ob das Auto nun echt ist oder nicht!
