Photographer's Note

A house for sale, are you interested?

If you look more closely you will see that the door and windows are not real. It is an example of 'Trompe l'oeil'.

Trompe l'oeil is a painting style that sets out to 'fool the eye' into seeing a painted picture as something real.

Knaresborough has many blank windows in older buildings around the town, and these have been used to brighten them up, as well as creating doorways too.

As far as I can discover, the tradition continues to this day; this shot was taken in 2006.

One more example in the w/shop.
Thanks for looking.
