If there's any photography effect that's more fun to look at than the time-lapse, it's tilt-shift photography, the camera trick that makes a normal real-life scene look like it's actually built out of miniatures. But the coolest effect is a mix of the two, like in this tilt-shift time-lapse of Melbourne, Australia by Nathan Kaso. The piece took 10 months to make, and includes scenes from festivals, parades, fireworks displays, and every-day life in Melbourne. It makes you want to visit the place, if only you could shrink down to the right size. [design you trust]
