Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Transmogrify

Posted in response to the weekly photo challenge that appears on the WordPress Daily Post

“To change in appearance or form, especially strangely or grotesquely; transform.”

I was a bit stumped by the challenge this week. I was wondering how you can use one picture to illustrate the process of change. When I have tried to do that myself I tend to use more than one picture and either post as a diptych or triptych (don’t worry there’s a website for that). So I started scanning my flickr stream and came across a wine bottle label. It has a picture which actually changes as you look at it. It can either be a skull, or someone falling out of a tree. What seems to be a row of teeth is a wattle fence. Transmogrification right before your very eyes!

Wine bottle label Chardonnay South Australia 2013 Skulls: or is it someone who has fallen out of the tree and a boat suspended like a hammock?

The wine is a South Australia Chardonnay vintage 2013 called Skulls. It was quite nice really. But what makes you pick it up in the store is the label, which is very clever marketing.

  1. Wow! That’s actually quite cool. I’ll have to keep my eyes open in the supermarkets for this – just for the label you understand! 🙂
