These are not photos of miniatures or models.  Rather these are images from photographer Ben ThomasCityshrinker series and are actual cities around the world.  Thomas uses what is called a ’tilt-shift technique’.  Among other things, the technique basically corrects the distortion caused by perspective.  This correction often has the appearance of miniaturizing the camera’s subject.  Thomas’ images present the world as if it were a toy.  Some of the world’s largest cities seem to shrink into playful places.  The images turn a lighthearted eye onto some of our favorite places.
