Gorgeous Tree

A tree is a tree.

What am I talking about?

Look at the picture below and you will see a beautifully grown tree.


Look carefully if you are convince it is.

Do you see some "rectangular" objects attached along with the leaves?

They are antennae (aerials).

They are used for radio transmission to portable devices.

The "tree" is actually a cellular base station dressed up as a tree.

What a way to blend in communication technology with nature!

Looking and Thinking

By looking at the picture on the left, you may have a few questions pooping out of your mind?
What are the objects and their physical relationships?

Looking and thinking come hand in hand.

Let's say if there are 3 objects in the picture.
 I suppose the relationship is clearer.

But what if there is only 2 planks?
Is there anything wrong?

Challenge your imagination!
Our minds are always gorgeously wonderful.

Any comments?

Weird Characters

Funny things do happen now and then.

Even computer screen and its file may play "fun" with you.

When you open files in an improper manner, you may be in for a shock, or otherwise see an "artisitc" presentation.

See below to understand what I mean.
Gorgeous piece of mess, right?

But do enjoy it anyway!

Unique Camouflage Techniques

Looking at the various pictures below may make you wonder what the objects are.

The painting done conceal an object.

The object is a warship.

This form of camouflage was used long ago before radar was invented and deployed.

Gorgeous isn't it?

Circles and Squares Create Exciting Visual Impact

Circles and squares when placed in a certain combination can create interesting image that can challenge our visual sense.

Look at the diagram below.

Do you see that the lines of the squares are bent?

The lines are actually straight! There are not bent.
The circles are the ones that cause a visual trick to our eyes.

What you see can be deceiving, in this case,
and also to that of the previous post with another mixture of squares and circles.

Enjoy seeing circles and squares!

Squares and Circles Make Fun in Viewing

Square and circle in isolation look just like what they exactly are.

A square will look like a square.
A circle will look like a circle.

But if they are combined, or superimposed onto each other, different visual appearances happen.

One example is shown below.

What is interesting is that the circles look a bit of odd and distorted.

This is the eye and brain communication part at play.

How Does It Looks Like When Young?

There is a saying "Like Father, Like Son".

I came across a tree, a full grown one, with an unique display of its leaves and trunks.

See below.

However, I wonder how it looks when young.

I went walking around the vicinity, and chance upon a cute tree.

I suppose it has link to the "big" one.

See below.

Is it a case of "Like Father, Like Son"?

Have Eyes But Do You See it?

In the below photo, there is nothing great to see.
Only a plain piece of grass field.

Or is it really so?

See carefully. Do not be surprise if you see something......

Hidden in sight is a living thing, a creepy one.
A gorgeous skill of survival.

Stare hard next time when you walk about.

Wonderful Tree And a Determined One

The strength in a person cannot be expressed outwardly till you work with him.

However, for a tree is it very obvious.

By looking at the below photo, you will agree with me.

Here you will see the marvellous tree trunk slanting at an angle.

A human will need a strong waist to hold on to this!

The strength of this tree tells us a simple message "If there is a will, there is a way".

Strong tree, right?

Gorgeous anything, even a tree!

Similarities | Idea Inspiration

Many things in life looks the same.

Though not at all the same, they can be compared when you are "sharp".

Sometimes thing started off with an objective in mind, but slowly you discovered many looks like it.

One example is shown below.

Do you see the similarities between the above two items?

The flower has grown to look like the Esplanade, a structure (or vice versa).

This is gorgeous and beautiful.

Life is exciting if you keep your eyes open for such things.

Enjoy comparing.

Gorgeous Water Art

I came across a marble seat after a heavy down-pour. The water remaining on its flat surface was an exciting piece of art.

This piece of art, as I noticed, will never be able to reproduce itself exactly the same as current.

It reminds me that what appears today, or even this very second, can never happen again, especially for some instances.

Looking at the water "pools" residing on the surface, unique combinations of them together with various outlines they formed, made the whole piece of art a precious moment to treasure for it may be wiped away, or water evaporated.

Below I present the photo I captured to make this moment an ever-lasting and gorgeous event.

Treaure every moment that nature has onto us.

Similar Words But Drastically Different Meaning

Words are interesting. Some are outright straight-forward. But some are shocking.

Take for example:
"look" and "see", has the similar meaning.

But how about,
"overlook" and "oversee"?

The meaning changes, even though "look" and "see" seem to be the same!
The meaning is a drastic change.

When your in-law goes out of the house, does he become an "out-law" ?

Just simply an "in" and "out" changes the meaning completely!
A good person can be mistakenly taken as bad, if words are played about.

.... points to ponder about.

Clock Can Display Nice Numbers

I have many a times watched the digital clock displayed marvellous numbers that shocked me for its beauty.

You may have also seen them, but had them slip your attention.

Here I present some exciting and gorgeous combination of the digital clock time display.








07:11 (seven eleveN - the convenient shop)





02:46 (even number)

Next time, when you look at the time on your wrist, think of the magic moment that is unique at that particular instance. They may not come back again till a long, long time.

Concept Of eBook Is Gorgeous

Who came out the concept and idea of eBook?

It is an interesting invention.

Why so?

For one thing, weight.

One eBook has the same weight as one thousand of it.

Gorgeous isn't it?

Skewed Rectangles

When lines are inter-mixed together, they form images that is beyond the comprehension of our eyes.

See for yourself the below rectangles.

Do they seem to be right-angled?

They are! (to be frank). It is our eyes that are playing tricks......... again!

Interesting, don't you find it?

Words Are Gorgeous!

The words that we use everyday are gorgeous unknowingly, sometimes, by us.

Why do I say that?

See the below to understand.


You see my point now?
Gorgeous aren't they?

Any more words to be added?

Flat Plane or Otherwise

Looking at the above picture, do you notice something fishy?
It seems normal with a block going through the ribs.
This is another impossible situation if the light blue plane is flat (except of the centre rib).
Can you see why?
Geometry is helpful in this matter to guide our frame of view to expose the "wrongs".

Up or Down, You Decide

Visual presentation of pictures can be made gorgeous.

This is especially so when the picture is a "shock".

If the picture does not follow logic, it strikes the mind.

The mind will wonder what happen.

Is the brain alright, or are the eyes playing tricks?

Looooook at the below...

Can the ball go through the poles?

A bit of a weird here, right?

Up or down ?

Gorgeous image.... a deception to the eyes!

Arrow In Question

Looking at the arrows through the heart, can you identify which is the correct one going through it?

Is it the upper arrow or the one below?

Visually, sometimes, it is hard to tell.

Gaps between objects of interest do possess some confusion for our vision.

Use a ruler to get the answer.

Sides Can Be Deceptive

Can you find anything wrong with this object?
With a geometrical deception, an interesting object can be produced.
The sides of this object is carefully "oriented" to look confusing, yet normal if not seriously looked at.
In everyday life, things may not be what you see. This object illustrates the nature our eyes see things.

Frames, frames, frames...
Gorgeous twisted frames.

Cunning Overlapping of Objects

Three objects lying side by side with one at a special posture.

The white-coloured block is the culprit in this diagram playing trick with your eyes.

Though the white block is at the background, its leg moved up to become at the foreground, heading the three.

Funny drawing isn't it?

You can do the same, sketching wonders that fascinate our eyes.

Twist Here, Twist There, Everywhere, Twist Twist

With a bit of imagination, you can twist and overlap an impossible rib into a structure not possible in real life.

Drawing comes to life with creative twists.

It is fun. Try one for yourself.

Deceptive drawings are one way to trick the mind and the eye.
Or are they to challenge the logic?

Staircase Of Character

Climbing staircase is second nature to most of us.

But be aware.

Don't be too confidence.

There are some that do not really seem normal.

Look whether you can go through this special staircase.
It has its unique character.

It cheats the eye. Climbing it calls for balancing and focusing in order not to get hurt!

Can you see why?

Enjoy climbing this gorgeous staircase.

Anything is gorgeous if you do not limit your imagination.

Blurred Image

Depending on the reflection from a surface, you may find all sort of images reflected.

The images formed may at one time differs from another time.

By looking at the image, especially a blurred one, you may see or imagine many things.

What do you see in the reflection below?

Is there any other things you can see also?

Like the saying "A picture tells many stories". Does this one satisfies the statement?

Brain-eye co-ordination is amazing and gorgeous.

What do you think?

Weird Crossed Plane

Beautifully placed across each other are these three planes.
They are closely linked with an abnormal perspective.
Can you figure out what is so striking about their layout?
Drawing can be deceptive, and flaws not noticed with loosely scanned through.
This can be one of them.

Gorgeous Tower Crane

Rising high above the sky is this useful crane, lifting and hauling objects deemed too inconvenience to carry by hand.

What if the Egyptian Pyramid was built by this tower crane at that time?
There will be more Pyramids!

Next time if you happen to see one of this crane, spare a few seconds to look at it. It deserves the respect.

Gorgeously great.

Seeing To Unbelieving - A Cross-Legged Figure

Look! A special cross-legged figure.

It looks like a human with one leg lifted. Or does it?

Is the figure possible?

Is the geometrical alignment possible?

Can you believe your eyes that this figure is feasible in real life?

Unbelievable that drawing can expose many weakness in our vision.
This is one of them. Deceptiveness at play...
