Miniature Urban Landscapes

Little People in the city...
The other day I was watching 'Smart' when they had a feature on someone who made tiny figures and placed them in city streets and took photos which were close-up and then actual size to show them in context.
Turns out the person is called Slinkachu.
His blog has quite a few examples of his artwork, which could potentially form the basis of a geography homework (although I'd need to think about that a little more...)
I like the idea of playing with scale...

A GOOGLE IMAGE search will lead you to more...
