PhotoHunt: artificial

Agde, on the south coast of France, view 1

Agde again, view 2.

Avignon in Provence.

Things artificial often have a bad press, but here we have three examples of trompe l'oeil putting the art into artificial, and blurring the line between the real and the artificial.

As always, you can click on the photos for a larger view.
