Now You See It

Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.
Antoine de Saint Exupéry


Part of the quote above was used on one of my favorite TV shows, NCIS, this week.  When I decided to post the following pictures today I thought is fit well.
The tutorial I did on How to be Visually Seamless had a few comments about not being able to see where the seam really was.  I had tried to figure out how to photograph it for the tutorial and did the best I could.  A few weeks ago (before my travels) I managed to capture the seams with an alternate light source.  Here are the pictures.  It may look like they are all the same border but they are of all four borders and the four seams I made.

I used my light table for the photos.  While I was taking them I accidentally took one with the light in my lap.  I thought it would be a wasted one but it turned out to be the best shot of the seam because it only showed halfway up the border.  Nothing like serendipity.  LOL

Now You Can See It!

I hope this brings a little light to the topic.  ;-)  I'll have to show you my light table sometimes.

If you haven't read the original post the link is at the top.  If you have tried to do this let me know how it went.
