Another Perspective (or Illusion)

Not traffic cones this time.


People tend to 'see' things based on what they know.

Here is an old, old photo of a chain fruit cholla

From the angle of the shot and the surrounding scrub brush, one could easily make the assumption that this is about 3' - 4' tall (about a meter or just over).

This is old, and yes this is (was) really me...

And no altering of the photo...

I am reaching up to some of the chain fruit! This is about 10' (3 meters) tall!!

And yes, I've put on some weight since this was taken over 20 years ago...
