F-line Milan Tram in Miniature

No, that is not a fantastically detailed scale miniature of the Ferry Terminal. Photographer Raymond Moreno has scaled down one of San Francisco’s real-life streetcars using the tilt-shift photographic technique. Tilt-shift is an increasingly popular effect recently been featured in several ad campaigns and, as you can see, has the effect of turning real life into a scale model.
“I am always on the look out for photo opportunities that might lend themselves to the tilt-shift treatment. And I have found that views from above lend themselves quite well to this.” says Moreno, who explains how this photo came about, “I was visiting friends from out of town who were staying at the Hyatt at the Embarcadero. Stopping in their room I took the opportunity to wander over to the window facing the Ferry building to look for photo opportunities and there was the wonderful Milan car parked below me.”
