When people rag on L.A., it's usually the city's congested, traffic-crammed streets that bear the brunt of the criticism, along with its utter lack public transportation, which keeps it all from feeling like one, cohesive city. With these complaints in mind, photographer David Yoon created this Narrow Streets Los Angeles series, in which he digitally alters the street width to make sprawling boulevards look like wee little alleys, thus rendering L.A. infinitely cuter and more walkable. Yoon calls his project "a fantasy urban makeover in photographs" and was inspired, he says, by coming home to the states after a vacation spent wandering Paris' charmingly narrow avenues. Take a look at a few more surreal before-and-after shots, below.
