|2011 MSL Champs!|
There's a great article about the win from the local paper here:
The trophy is designed to have an 8x10 team photo mounted in it. The Varsity roster tends to change a bit by the end of the season, so I wanted to take a new photo to put in the trophy. Plus I wanted the trophy itself to be in the photo.
Here's how it turned out. Nice!
|The trophy looks nice in "the cage"--our tiny, tiny gym!|
And here's a closer look at the team photo:
|Yes, I'm the shortest guy in the photo|
But here's your brainteaser challenge: Notice anything odd about the photo?
The answer after the break.
The answer: We're holding the trophy in the photo and that trophy (the one IN the photo) already has the photo in it! Oh, and that photo, the one that's inside the trophy that's inside the photo--it too has the photo in it.
It's like Inception; if you think about it too hard, your brain will explode.
Here's a closeup of the Photoshop trickery:
I added fake glare on the photo to make it look more realistic and I masked off the gold figure of the guy doing the handstand so it would appear in front of the team photo that I digitally pasted over the trophy.
Yes, this is my idea of fun. Don't judge.
Okay, back to work everyone.
