This week at Urban Travel Blog we thought we’d feature something a little more fun than usual by publishing photos of some of our favourite cities in (fake) miniature. According to the fount of all knowledge, by blurring parts of a photo it is possible to “simulate the shallow depth of field normally encountered in close-up photography, making the scene seem much smaller than it actually is.” Which is exactly the effect UTB photographer Anna Spysz has gone for in the following photos.

The result is the likes of Paris, St. Petersburg and Budapest are transformed from giant metropolises into models straight out of an architect’s office – only this time the architect is God. Maybe this is where we should write something philosophical about our tiny, insignificant presence on a transient Earth; or perhaps we should just stick to admiring the pictures…
