When I was in fifth grade I entered a project in the city science fair entitled, "Does age have any affect on our ability to perceive an optical illusion?" (hey, what can I say...I was a little geek.) Ever since then, I have been intrigued by things that aren't as they seem. I go crazy for tromp l'oeil and love places like the Santa Cruz Mystery Spot. And clever visuals or photographic trickery? I'm all over it. So I was really excited to discover photographer Jan von Holleben's super whimsical photo series entitled "dreams of flying." They're right up my alley.
