15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Trampantojo

In Aveiro (Portugal) we find a large number of trompe l'oeil (comes from "trap to eye"), a technique that tries to fool the view by playing with the architectural environment. This one caught my attention especially for its colors and the inclusion of real parts such as windows and mannequins. I wanted to give the real counterpoint to the man at the door of the store.
