Classic Camouflage 'Dazzles' in London

In commemoration of the 100th anniversary of World War I, German artist Tobias Rehberger was commissioned by the British Navy to resurrect the WWI-era form of ship cloaking known as 'dazzle camouflage.' Using visually disorienting patterns and colors, 'dazzle ships' were believed to be better protected from attacks by German U-Boats during the Great War.

Excellent picture Don. It reminds me of this quote : "The aim is to surprise the Enemy, not amaze him!"
