Some nice examples of forced perspective

I come across some entertaining stuff while I am browsing various photography and design related sites, and one that I always find quite amusing is forced perspective photography.If you haven't come across this before it is a photography technique that involves using optical illusions to make objects appear nearer or farther away than they actually are. Of course you could do this stuff in Photoshop fairly easily, but here are a few examples just done with a camera and some clever positioning. I guess you could call it Photoshop without any Photoshop. Forced perspective with a Brolly

Forced perspective shots can be carefully staged or just a case of the right place at the right time. Either way they can often bring a smile to the face.
