Does anyone else find this stuff disturbing?

Not me. :P
I'm just a student of the game that they taught me.

They sometimes make me feel ill.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.

I have to admit the moving spirals type illusion can upset my balance sensors. Visual dissonance can cause sea sickness type probs. But stationary ones bother me not.

Ye, it's a bit like motion sickness, Escher is fine.
Flickering light I think maybe???  triggers epileptic fits, or not.
I look away before things go awry.

I've had migraine, I think, and I think that might be relevant.

I think a lot of it has to do with expectation. If you expect to feel a little queasy you might.

I'm going to extend the deadline to give a chance to those who'd really like to enter something but haven't yet. People are busier at this time of year, so perhaps another week or so.  :computerwave:

I think my brain has gone into hibernation (perhaps I should take that hat off?) - no inspirations at all. Doesn't help that I have not gone out further than the supermarket for weeks.

There should be some interesting perspective possibilities along the supermarket aisles.

I just seem to have lost the ability to observe - I have to make it a task on its own. If I go to town all thoughts of shopping, even my beloved book shop, have to be expunged. I find it very hard to concentrate. Researching, looking for a solution to abptoblem... things like that still come naturally, hold my concentration. Technical photography is a favourite. But in public places my attention is 99% on the people round me and I cannot switch it off.

Will try harder, but I need something different, that the chances of another finding is slim. I was never just a snapper.

I can empathize with what you are saying. I am also usually not a snapper. The downside is that I over-think and over-plan everything, which is probably quite clear when you look at my photos.

Thank you kind sir, I actually have mine ready, but since we have another week I'm going to wait to submit just in case I see something better...otherwise I'll send my stuff in by the 27th.

My six year old can see it. :grin:
I showed him the image with no words, asked him if he could see the two dinosaurs and he said, "Yes, (pointed), right there."
 :yes!:
