"Middle" is a challenging prompt, and I had to dig a bit... but here goes, with a couple of seaside pics.

First, a shot of people strolling along the Ogden Point breakwater in Victoria, British Columbia, shortly before the powers that be added a railing to it. The walkers look like they're floating in the middle of 2 parallel landscapes. The upper one is "real" (a view of the Olympic Mountains in neighbouring Washington state), while the lower one shows a detail of the Na'Tsa'Maht (Unity Wall) mural by local artists of the Songhees and Esquimalt First Nations.

And a 5-year-old photo of Damien Hirst's (in)famous statue Verity. This fully-naked, half-flayed pregnant woman stands 66.4 feet tall at the entrance of Ilfracombe harbour. Thanks to the temporary presence of the annual Ilfracombe fair (and a little trompe-l'oeil), it looks like she's emerging from the middle of a teacup!
