Souvenirs Inspires Travel, Creativity in Photography

Flickr is a dreamland — but while you get to be exposed to a wide variety of photography, amateur and professional, it's overwhelming and sometimes difficult to find new streams that move you. That is, until you find something like photographer Michael Hughes's set of images, called souvenirs.

Hughes's cheeky photos consist of images where he holds the miniature version of a landmark up to the actual landmark that inspired it, like the Eiffel Tower or the Brandenburg Gate.

I'm not usually amped up to take a ton of photos of an iconic monument, but Hughes's work encourages me to see the "same old things" with different eyes — or lens, ahem. Check out the whole set and see if you don't get the same feeling!

I try to avoid buying souvenirs, so I never would have thought of this. I hope this guy comes to China. We have lots of kitschy souvenirs shaped like things.
