Here's What London Looks Like When it Vacations in Portugal

New, 1 comment

Switzerland-based photographer Gus Petro, who famously plunked the entirety of NYC into the Grand Canyon via photoshop, is at it again—this time transplanting some of London's most recognizable architectural icons to the coast of Algarve, Portugal. The artist describes the project as "when the center meets the end point," in reference to the time in Europe's history when London was the epicenter of western civilization, as well as the days in which people believed Portugal to be the very edge of the (flat) world. The resulting composite is a stunning mash-up between gorgeous man-made buildings and one of the most impressive geographical landscapes in Europe. Basically, if this was a real place, it would make for one seriously popular tourist destination. Check out a few more photos, below:
