December 17, 2011 Garage to Nowhere

via Style Your Garage

Our neighbor has a a sea-plane painted on their garage door.
From the street is looks like a real plane parked there.

(It's an upscale neighborhood, but a lot of us are not so upscale)

Poorly shopped

Trilby  Saturday Dec 17 02:35 PM

I'd take that road.

Clodfobble  Saturday Dec 17 03:48 PM

Scriv, you should consider following the link in the original post. This IoTD is not, in fact, photoshopped at all. It is a totally legitimate photo of a garage door.

Scriveyn  Saturday Dec 17 04:03 PM

I did. And the photo pasted on the garage door is very poorly shopped.

Clodfobble  Saturday Dec 17 04:21 PM

Well, being a foreign company, they were probably high when they designed it.

Prank: take a photo of the inside of your prankee's garage, produce poster of it, stick it to their garage door. Preferably before they drive home tipsy from the Christmas party and try to park after dark. bwahaahaaaaa...

Cultural reference aid, in case your childhood was Looney Tunes deprived. Which would be a tragedy.

Haha, I assure you I learned everything I need to know about physics from Wile E. Coyote.

You must have better eyes than I or you know some things to look for. I am afraid that I don't know how to tell if something is shopped or not.

(Woefully naive.)

Just a quickie: For the face of the snowshovel to be lit like it is, there would almost have to be a shadow on the wall behind it. And there isn't.

Hmmm. I guess I am confused. What part are you saying is poorly 'shopped?

This is a mural that is put on your garage door to make it look like it is a road passing through.

Product information
Weather-resistant, high-quality photo covers for external use.
Includes complete kit for securing to your garage door.
Ideal for up-and-over doors, wing doors and sectional doors.
So, are you saying this isn't really a mural or that the mural was poorly done?

infinite monkey  Thursday Dec 22 11:08 AM

I think the 'mural' part hasn't sunk in yet for some.

glatt  Thursday Dec 22 11:22 AM

It's my opinion that the mural is a real thing offered for sale, but that it is not actually applied to the door in the picture. I believe the mural image has been photoshopped into the picture of the garage to make it look like it was applied. If there was actually a mural on the door, there would be some texture to the mural. Little ripples where it didn't lie perfectly flat. There would be slight reflections in the mural.

when you take a picture of a picture, you almost always get reflections.

The IOTD is very similar to the simulated images you see on TV screens or computer monitors sold in catalogs.
