HERE'S THE STEP BY STEP ON HOW 

EDGAR MUELLER creates his Sidewalk 3D work

LONDON, West India Quay on the Isle of Dogs
Mueller surveys his 'canvas', located at the West India Quay on London 's Isle of Dogs.

mueller1.jpg (58567 bytes)

The artist puts down his first strokes as the scene begins to take shape.

mueller2.jpg (69820 bytes)

Mueller paints stalactites to add realism and detail to his piece.

mueller3.jpg (80786 bytes)

Mueller said he wanted the artwork to appear as if the cave was unearthed by an earthquake.

mueller4.jpg (86679 bytes)

Curious locals inspect the 100-square-metre scene

mueller5.jpg (63834 bytes)

When viewed from the opposite angle, the 3D image disappears

mueller6.jpg (65438 bytes)

   
IRELAND
RAIN?  Edgar Mueller's previous artwork had to contend with rain in Ireland earlier this year

mueller7.jpg (81863 bytes)

Mueller used a hair dryer to desperately fix the soggy paintwork

mueller8.jpg (80361 bytes)

By day two, 'The Crevasse' begins to take shape

mueller9.jpg (93517 bytes)

Mueller hurries while the weather is fine.

mueller10.jpg (82748 bytes)

The final touches are made on day five of the exhausting assignment

Winter of 2007-2008:
Michigan has had the coldest winter in decades. Water expands to freeze, and at Mackinaw City the water in Lake Huron below the surface ice was super cooled. It expanded to break through the surface ice and froze into this incredible wave.
 
I've seen pictures of this wave phenomena in Antarctica, but in Michigan? Yes, it's been quite a winter!

northpolesunset.jpg (34420 bytes)

This is the SUNSET at the NORTH POLE with the moon at its closest point - digitally created, that is, according to Snopes, entitled "Hideaway" by German astrophysics student Inga Nielsen using Terragen scenery-rendering software.  Still beautiful work.

 

Thought for the day:

Kitty litter cake.jpg (21375 bytes)

CAKE INGREDIENTS for CAT LITTER CAKE

1 box spice or German chocolate cake mix
1 box of white cake mix
1 package white sandwich cookies
1 large package vanilla instant pudding mix
A few drops green food coloring
12 small Tootsie Rolls or equivalent

SERVING "DISHES AND UTENSILS"

1 NEW cat-litter box
1 NEW cat-litter box liner
1 NEW pooper scooper

Prepare and bake cake mixes, according to directions, in any size pan.
Prepare pudding and chill. Crumble cookies in small batches in blender or
food processor. Add a few drops of green food  coloring to 1 cup of cookie
crumbs. Mix with a fork or shake in a jar. Set aside.

When cakes are at room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss
with half of the remaining cookie crumbs and enough pudding to make the
mixture moist but not soggy. Place liner in litter box and pour in mixture.

Unwrap 3 Tootsie Rolls and heat in a microwave until soft and pliable.
Shape the blunt ends into slightly curved points. Repeat with three more
rolls.  Bury the rolls decoratively in the cake mixture.. Sprinkle remaining
white cookie crumbs over the mixture, then scatter green crumbs lightly over
top.

Heat 5 more Tootsie Rolls until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the
cake and sprinkle with crumbs from the litter box. Heat the remaining
Tootsie Roll until pliable and hang it over the edge of the box. Place box
on a sheet of newspaper and serve with scooper. Enjoy!

She contacted me with more information from her online gallery on how it was taken, except for resizing and color correction, this is really what she saw & photographed:

 

Here's another image taken moments later as the cloud was dissolving:

ANSWER TO THE MONA LISA PUZZLE AT THE TOP OF THE PAGE

Amazing - what you are seeing is 3,604 cups of coffee which have been made into a giant Mona Lisa.  

The 3,604 cups of coffee were each filled with different amounts of milk to create the different shades.
