Default WAAAYYY cool.... check this out !

Maybe not new to the most of you, but this blew me away ! Probably not the place to post it, but I thought you might be interested....

Be sure to hit the "show info" button on the top bar to get some interesting backround info.

The guy said it like this....

"What started out as an exercise in model building and photography, ended up as a dream-like reconstruction a town. It's not an exact recreation, but it does capture the mood of my memories. And like a dream, many of the buildings show up in different configurations throughout the photos. Or sometimes, the buildings stay put and the backgrounds change. Visually, this is heading towards the realm of ART. NO PHOTOSHOP WAS USED IN THESE PICTURES. IT'S ALL STRAIGHT FROM THE CAMERA. It's the oldest trick in the special effects book: line up a model with an appropriate background and shoot. The buildings are 1/24th scale [ or 1/2 inch equals a foot ]. They are constructed of Gator board, styrene plastic, Sintra [ a light flexible plastic that can be carved, and painted ] plus numerous found objects; such as jewelery pieces, finishing washers and printed material. "

As someone who has been photographing old cars for 12 years I was amazed at this guy's ability, and the attention to detail that resulted in shots that fool the eye. I could have saved a lot of time and gas by following his example. Here are some of my "real" cars.

www.pbase.com/gwcoles

I have 2 galleries of cars on that site...about 1500 vehicles
