Michael Paul Smith's Elgin Park

Michael Paul Smith's Elgin Park: not only great modelling, but some really good old-fashioned, in-camera trick photography.  :-* :)

For over 25 years, he has been creating an imaginary world called “Elgin Park,” filled with scaled models of old cars. They’re 1/24th the size to be exact. He chooses appropriate surroundings for these models, and then uses his camera to capture the most realistic shot possible. The kind of shot that you have no idea is within a tiny world.

Here’s the best part: he does it all with a $200 point and shoot camera. Dive into his world below.

Cheers to Hamster on Bikersweb for finding this one.  :)
