What if… no one saw you for what you really are!

What if Weekends: 52 Weeks Project 44/52

Some people believe Aliens are amongst us, we just can’t ‘see’ them. Not that I would blame them, have you ever noticed in a lot of sci-fi movies… an alien lands on earth and what do we do… we attack! I watched Battelship last week, in which we invite aliens from another planet, they come and we open fire! No wonder they don’t want to be seen!

Can you imagine how difficult that would be though, going through life and no one can see you for what you really are! Talk about identity crisis! I know some people do act differently when out in public than they do with those people who are close to them, it’s their way of protecting themselves. People can be cruel to each other for the way a person looks or acts, I know, I’ve been on the receiving end of that cruelty. Growing up I was always different, having emigrated from England, I dressed differently, had long hair and an accent. Not sure why kids felt they had to be cruel to me as a result, it’s not like I was purple and had horns! So I can see why others would want to act differently in public, hide their true identity, or put on a suit of armour so they’re not vulnerable to the attacks of those that don’t understand them… or fear them! I have a secret identity myself, but don’t tell.

This is my What if Weekend Photo Illusion for week 44 of my 52 Weeks Project! Thanks to Michelle Gendron for reprising her alien side in another one of my Illusions.

This 52 Week Project is part of a new endeavour of mine I call Photo Illusionism, one photo illusion every week for 52 weeks, check out the web site and “Like” my page on Facebook. And remember, if you want one of your own photo illusions, send me a message and let’s talk… I have 8 more to do!
