Outer Space Illusion Gallery

Having photographed over 400 houses in the past year and a half, I've come across a lot of things . . . some funny, some strange, and others surprising. With this blog post I wanted to share a particular illusion I came across by accident while playing around with my on-camera flash. While these images may be reminiscent of galaxies and nebulae, they are in actuality just stove tops. Three of the photos featured in this gallery are also of the same stove top, but appear unique in their color and lighting due to the direction of the flash's bounce. The other two images were taken in a different house where the stove top reminded me of the previous images, presenting itself as an opportunity to add to my "galactic" photo collection.
