50 Fun Examples of Forced Perspective

Image credit: 

Forced perspective is a photography trick that involves placing two or more objects or people at different distances so when the picture comes out, it looks like one of them is a drastically different size. The technique can result in some really fun photos and is most commonly seen at places like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, where tourists constantly pose as though they are holding up the iconic building.

For those who enjoy more creative uses of this technique, WebUrbanist has a great collection of fifty delightful forced perspective images including landmarks, light, rainbows and more for your viewing pleasure.
