Small Town Photos

Michael Paul Smith is not only an amazing miniature modeler, but he's a great photographer too.

So, first, he's created an entire 1/24-scale town, with incredible detail. The models are simply fantastic. He calls the town Elgin Park.

Then, he takes the models outside and places them in front of trees or what have you. With the real background, and clever camera placement, the detailed models are almost indistinguishable from the real thing.

This link is not a site, but "only" his Flickr photostream. Take some time to go through it and marvel at the manufactured reality of Elgin Park.
