More minis

Having tasted the thrill of creating miniature views from regular photos, I went through a number of older photos searching for candidates for shrinkage. This photo, posted last August, of a group of people taking pictures at Minnesota's Gooseberry Falls seemed to fit the bill. You can get a glimpse of the original photo here.

I'll finish out the week with the minis; hopefully by then I'll have gotten it out of my system.

If you'd like to see more, there are a number of groups on Flickr that are dedicated to the craft. You can make these photos in one of two ways: buy a very expensive lens that does it for you, or manipulate the photos in PhotoShop. Here is a group that fakes it.

m2, an album cover seems good to me. The Little River Band, maybe?
