    A friend sent me an e-mail with these pics. Took awhile to figure them out. They are paintings on solid sidewalks or roads. Not what they appear.

    I've seen this guys work before. Pretty amazing what he can do. Saw some pics from different angles showing how it was done. He makes the pictures very elongated so when the picture is viewed from a certain perspective it looks 3D. Some of the pics look as though they are a block or so long.

    I'm sure there are a few guys that do this, but the guy who made it famous is Julian Beever. You can google his website and images.

    Great work.

    Sorry, Sys. I didn't see it. A friend sent me an email and it was unique. Do you know which thread and a link?
