Over his long career of making and building, self-taught photographer Michael Paul Smith has at times referred to himself as a text book illustrator, a wallpaper hanger and house painter, a museum display designer, an architectural model maker, and art director. All of these skills have culminated in the amazing ability to shoot forced perspective outdoor scenes using his extensive diecast model car collection. Something he calls his “quirky hobby.”
For nearly 25 years Smith has been working on a fictional town he refers to as Elgin Park where all of his miniature scenes take place. To make each shot he positions an old card table at scenic points around Boston and positions his minutely detailed cars and model sets on top. Using an inexpensive point-and-shoot camera and natural light he then snaps away, simply eye-balling the perspective to get everything right.
These are sofa king impressive!

Very impressive video of the Tesla Model S getting put together, from the stamping of the aluminum to the fabrication to the insertion of the seats and interior. Wow.

LaFerrari - The Maximum Expression of Excellence.
Concept to design, this is the fastest road legal Ferrari yet. It employs a V12 combustion engine for 800 hp plus an advanced KERS (kinetic energy recovery system) electric motor for an additional 163 hp… yep, that’s a total of 963 hp.

The new LaFerrari…
Lamborghini just shit itself.
If Leonardo da Vinci knew this was the kind of “machine” being made 500 years later, I’m pretty sure he would have shat himself.
