I Cheated

Ten Mixers

Originally uploaded by Ian Fuller

There were only nine cement mixers lined up at this construction site on the corner of Ploen Chit Road and Soi Ruam Ruedi. The gap looked bad so I copied one of the trucks in Photoshop and put it in the space. I had to shrink it slightly to fit.

I altered the markings slightly so it wasn’t an obvious clone.

At this size it’s a convincing fake. Anything larger and I am sure my limited Photoshop skills and patience would give the game away.

I feel better now I have confessed.

    Either way it looks pretty funny.

    Only in BKK could something like this happen.

    I am in good company with my fakery. See http://www.nytimes.com/slideshow/2009/08/23/weekinreview/20090823_FAKE_SS_index.html.

    The early fakes are very good but #11 is terrible! It’s got the telltale signs of the Photoshop clone stamp tool.
