Video: Watch a man recreate the most realistic photos of a mid-20th century small-town

Photography is one of the many arts associated with cars, especially those who like taking pictures of cars.

But Michael Paul Smith does a different kind of automotive photography–he replicates scenes from what would otherwise be the stereotypical, picture-perfect mid-20th century, only using 1/24th scaled models and his own ingenuity.

The amazing part about is setup is that he creates outstandingly realistic looking images and only uses a simple point-and-shoot consumer camera, no several-thousand-dollar DSLR, like many of us journalists run around with.

The theme is called Elgin Park and just hearing his story and watching him work, and above all, the results, are just staggering. Watch the video after the jump.
