Are souvenirs out of sight?

Travelling photographer Michael Hughes is keen on taking unusual sightseeing photos. The amazing idea is simple: to match a cheap souvenir, bought somewhere near, in front of the actual sight. The origins come from 1998 when Michael held up a postcard he bought for his daughter on the tourist platform at the Lorelei cliffs next to the river Rhine.

“I was amazed because it just seemed to fill a massive grey hole that was in the sky and it was the exact position the photographer had taken the picture from,” said Michael to Daily Mail.
