the miniature life

Tilt-shift photography is a fascinating technique used to make real-life (and to scale) scenarios appear to be miniature models. If you want the logistics behind it all, refer to the Wikipedia article, or Google it aka I-won't-be-able-to-explain-it-to-you-so-don't-ask.

And yes! These are all for real!
 Cool, huh?

Photographers still use this technique via lens, but many have turned to Photoshop to imitate the effect on regular photos. 
I think either way it's a quirky end-product and pretty fun to look at too.
