Trompe-lil
« on: December 06, 2021, 05:36:45 pm »

Not really street photography, but when I happened past the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C., this afternoon, the way Swiss painter Nicolas Party has wrapped the iconic drum-shaped building during the renovation of its exterior certainly did trompe on my il.

Good grab.
It will be an historic image once the renovation is complete.

I've snapped a number of Washington cover-ups over the years, but this one is the most innovative.

The Washington Monument
The Smithsonian Institution's Arts and Industries Building
The Capitol Dome
The Air and Space Museum

There may be others that I've forgotten.  One facade or another always seems to be deteriorating.  I attribute it to our toxic political atmosphere.
