The Little People

Here’s another really cute snippet from my friend Doreen.

She sent me this link to a really cute site called Little People – A Tiny Street Art Project.

This is sooo cute.

Slinkachoo is a British street artist and he has created and photographed these tiny scenes around Britain by handpainting the model people you get for model train sets and setting them up in various places around the country. He then photographs them and also takes a ‘step back’ type shot so you can see the full perspective.

Apparently after he photographs them, Slinkachoo leaves these little folk in place to interact with any passers by who happern to notice them.

Here are a couple of pics from the site but you should definitely go and check the rest out for yourself.

Click on the pictures to enlarge, or better still click over to The Little People and see them all.

Having just finished rereading Mary Norton’s The Borrowers series, the concept of these little people scattered all over Britain totally appeals to me. And Doreen’s email was so timely that I just had to share it with you.

  1. Oh how cute! One of the fun activities for grandparents and their grandchildren that my grandkids and I have been enjoying this summer was growing and playing in our version of the Sunflower House. We’ve had a lot of fun with it. Last week, my grandsons got all their little people and went out and played amidst all the Sunflowers in the circle. I grabbed my wonderfully easy to use digital camera – preset on automatic so I could take pix instead of having to think – and got several cute shots of them and their little people hiding in the leaves and stalks. Very cute photos and very fun for all of us. Thanks for an interesting article full of fun memories!
