Dots and Drums

The human eye is a wonderful thing as it presents us with images that look great, yet are often only based on an approximation of the reality we are perceiving.

The text on this piece of paper is a good example as the letters look smooth and well formed from a distance, with smooth shades of grey on parts of the paper.

The wonders of printing however and a macro lens reveal that it is really mostly an illusion; the text and images are truly black-or white with no shades of grey in reality.

Today was also carnival day here in town.   The procession was fun, however some of the sights were a little perturbing and I wished my eyes had provided me with just a pleasant illusion of the true reality!
