Remember the climactic scene in the Wizard of Oz when Dorothy and the gang finally got to see the Wizard? And there were all those scary special effects and banging noises and smoke that were meant to put everyone in awe of the Great Oz? But then we found out, thanks to brave Toto the dog , that it was all just an illusion. That behind the curtain, there was just a man running a bunch of machinery. “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!,” Oz bellowed to us.
For some reason all this popped into my head when I was photographing this just-completed topiary yesterday evening. That when you “look behind the curtain” as it were, when I am set up to shoot pictures of my product, things sure look a lot differently.
So here is a peek of what is behind the curtain. Not terribly romantic, is it? But, you know, somebody has to be back there pulling all the levers, don’t they?
Can you spy the Wizard?
