Ceci n’est pas une photographie

I love this photo. To me, it looks like a painting done by some great master from long ago. But it’s not. Thinking about that made me think of the Magritte painting that got everyone’s panties in a bunch that says “This is not a Pipe” below the image of a pipe (or really, “Ceci n’est pas une pipe”), discussed here: The Treachery of Images.

So, not knowing French, I used Google translation to write, “This is not a photograph” in French. And it’s true.

This “photo” taken June 17th, 2012, Columbus, Ohio by me.
