'Life is but a dream.' by quietpurplehaze

'Life is but a dream.'

"Row, row, row your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily merrily, merrily, merrily
Life is but a dream"


For some reason, Murphy preferred to sit at the end of our table in the pub rather than next to his owner and friend having lunch a couple of tables away.

He was also sitting in front of a poster on the wall and within reach of my camera so I decided to try for an illusion. (With a little care, the horse in the poster fitted just behind Murphy's body....)

I discovered later that Murphy is six years old and a gun dog which perhaps explained his impeccable behaviour sitting quietly while everyone else around him was eating.

I love this. He's dreaming of running through that field in the poster.

A wonderful capture and indeed a great illusion with the beautiful scenery beyond. Fav

A brilliant image - hard to believe it’s a poster and not real scenery. Fav

Richard, I had not thought of it as trompe l’oeil so you have made my evening, thank you!

Great work on your part to create this effect with the poster background. He does look a rather noble type beast.
