There's just something about these pictures....

These are just some pictures of small town America from back in the 50's and early 60's....or are they?  Click the "read more" to find out.

To fully appreciate these, click on each picture to get a bigger view, then go down past the arrows to see what you're really seeing.  

Remember this picture, then scroll down past the arrows to see the secret...

This is the same picture, only from a "slightly different perspective".

All of the above pictures, and many more, are the creations of Michael Paul Smith.  Everything is in 1/24th scale, and all of the backgrounds and sets are hand made by Smith.  His attention to detail is astounding. 

Mr. Smith has already gained a large following, and is coming out with a new book of his works called "Elgin Park".  More pictures can be seen on his Flickr and SmugMug Elgin Park pages.  Smith's main Flickr page has more albums showing how he makes the backgrounds.  Check them out and watch for the book when it hits the shelves.
