City Shrinker

Categories: Architecture + Interiors, Art + Graphics, Local + Travel


Ben Thomas sent over a URL to a very cool project:


He shrinks down cities to model size. The detail blows me away. How does he find the time?

The answer (from Michael): is Google Tilt Shift Photography

The site is worth definitely worth a visit.

  1. very cool!

  2. ummm… the time? these are tilt-shift photos, not actual models. i think when he refers to taking what we see everyday and shrinking it down to model size, he’s referring to shrinking it down ‘virtually.’
    sor more like this, google ’tilt-shift photography.’ yeah, i think that’s the proper term.

  3. Ha! In the meanwhile, I thought it was someone who was making little models. Funny…
    Anyway, more on Google “Tilt-Shift Photography” here

  4. This is a digital minipulation and a very cool one. I’ve seen several of these in just the past week – must be a new craze!
