Sunday Fun: Merge Ahead!

Copley Sq - Giant  Copley Paints Church

A bit of Sunday fun. A merger in photography occurs when a background object is directly in front or behind a subject. Usually our mergers are unsightly things, like framing up someone’s portrait to discover that a tree that appears to be growing from the subjects head. But this is a good merge, which is when the two elements merge in a fun way. Saba, the guide with PhotoWalks noticed that if you shoot a photo of the statue of John Singleton Copley from the correct angle, then it appears as if he is painting this church. While I’m sure the renowned Boston portrait artist often painted images of churches in his work, I doubt that this was what he had in mind. Cheers =)

      Thank you so much Soheir. It was a bit of fun.
      I was thinking of you this morning while driving. They were interviewing a Muslim couple on the West Coast of the U.S. about how they get up at 3:30 to prepare their sohoor.
      I hope you are having a great day.
