Weekly Photo Challenge: Magic

For those who believe that there is a rational explanation for just about everything, ‘magic’ is – by definition – something that isn’t real: in other words, an illusion. So here’s an, admittedly very impressive, example of an illusion.

In the centre of Limoges this medieval building dominates the Place de la Motte. Except that it’s neither medieval nor even a building – it’s a gigantic and brilliantly rendered trompe l’oeil mural, painted on the side of a much more modern edifice. The cat at top left isn’t real either (although the satellite dish is).

Not that I want to puncture the illusion, but here’s a wider-angle perspective:
