Don't you just love the shimmer of streetlights on wet streets?
Or the dry, crunchy sound of snow beneath your tires as you pull into your driveway at the end of a long day?
Don't you love it even more when that street, house and car is really a miniature?
This is the amazing work of artist and model builder Michael Paul Smith who has a gift for realism and using photography to bring his models to life! I honestly thought I was looking at real vintage photographs. What an amazing talent! He loves to share little tips about his technique too; how generous is that?! Click on his name above to link to his Flickr account or to this link for a write up on the "Beautiful Life" site with more beautiful pictures. Maybe you can fool a friend or two :)
