Virtual Travelling – Ceci n’est pas cinq parasols

This photo is actually untitled by the artist, but I feel this piece of conceptual art photography has more than a touch of the spirit of Magritte.

Anyone seen any other interesting art photos lately?

  1. Yes. But they’ll make you cry, despite having the word “journey” in the title.

    Sleep tight, sweet boy.

  2. Oui, very Magritte. If I see anything, I will have to handcopy the link, sigh.

  3. @ Helen
    I only made it to number 7. I almost copped out at number 5. There should be a “not safe for work you will be desperately blotting your eyes and hoping a co-worker doesn’t suddenly want to speak to you” warning. If you work in an open plan office don’t even try it. And most of those 7 were happy ones. God even typing that has made the tears start again. Can I cancel today and try again tomorrow?

  4. Further to my last comment – I looked at the rest, ignore the numbers above I got them all wrong. Also, make sure you are somewhere you can gave a really good cry, and if possible a hug from someone afterward. Of course YMMV.
