Deceit of the Eyes

How easily we are deceived!

We see what we expect to see.

Yesterday I posted this picture which purports to show ‘Sailors’ Retreat’.

Sailors' Retreat2

The boat is real but what else is real?

What do you see that isn’t really there?

This is only one shot with only basic manipulation but with nothing added.

  1. Looks like a row of street lights reflecting in the water round a bay in Loch Scridain, or somewhere not too far away from there. To get more accuracy from my psychic readings you have to pay the same rates as the police do.

    They call me up. I say, "Wait, wait.... I sense... I sense.... there's been a murder?" They say, "That's the only reason we ever call you up." I say "I knew you were going to say that".

  2. HI

    Will the police ever come asking for your help again?

    You'll need to check the follow-up post to see how right - or wrong - you are.

    I say no more.

  3. It looks like there are some houses on an obscured shore. On the other hand it might be the Lord Summerisle's annual Wicker Man festival...
