Forced perspective, as Wikipedia explains, "is a technique that employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is".
Or to put it another way: you know that thing tourists do when they visit the Leaning Tower of Pisa? That.
Going one - or rather, multiple - steps further than holding up the Leaning Tower of Pisa, however, is Kingston-born photographer Michael Hughes.
Hughes has spent 10 years creating an absolutely magical set of photographs in which he places a souvenir or replica of a landmark in its actual place. He's been all over the world doing it - and you can see just some of the results below.
Check out more on his Flickr page - and over on his site, download any of the top 10 to print yourself for just 1 Euro each, or buy his book for a mere 9 Euro. Hopefully the proceeds will fund yet more photography from his travels...
