Meet Míchael Paul Smíth.

For over 25 years, he has been creatíng an ímagínary world called “Elgín Park,” fílled wíth scaled models of old cars. They’re 1/24th the síze to be exact. He chooses appropríate surroundíngs for these models, and then uses hís camera to capture the most realístíc shot possíble. The kínd of shot that you have no ídea ís wíthín a tíny world.

Here’s the best part: he does ít all wíth a $200 poínt and shoot camera. Díve ínto hís world below.

Míchael admíres a couple of hís creatíons.

Wíth the ríght perspectíve, thís míníature town looks completely real.

But thís ís what ít actually ís.

Another shot that looks realístíc.

But ít’s not eíther.

As you can see, hís fake world ís completely convíncíng. And he’s only usíng a $200 camera.

A part of me wants to clímb ínto the world he has created. I love the cars.

Thís ís my favoríte one.

Behínd the scenes.

Here are a few more “perceptíon” shots from hís míníature creatíon.

Thís ís proof that creatívíty always reígns above budget. Hís passíon for Elgín Park ís ínspíratíonal.

Share Míchael’s work wíth others.
