An Instagrammer who uses his smartphone to photograph “hidden parallel worlds” reflected in water has turned his sights to the puddles of London.

Over the last week, Guido Gutiérrez Ruiz, a Canadian Spanish photographer, has captured stunning perspectives of some of the capital’s most famous tourist spots.

“All my photos are 100% smartphone pictures without tricks or photoshop. I only use the tools available on Instagram to edit them lightly if need be,” Gutiérrez Ruiz told HuffPost UK.

Gutiérrez Ruiz has cultivated a worldwide following of nearly 30,000 people with photographs of what he calls “hidden parallel worlds” taken with a Google Nexus 5 smartphone.

“I love to be able to share with everyone that one does not need an expensive camera in order to take a nice picture. I also like demonstrating the importance of perspective,” the amateur photographer said.

His latest collection of photos feature Big Ben, Trafalgar Square, the Thames and other less famous London sights.
