Photo: Hugh Morton, 1934

Do you remember that sketch from The Kids In The Hall when they would crush strangers heads? The perspective was just right to crush someone’s head in between your thumb and forefinger from across the street. So ridiculously simple and childish, it was hilarious! In the spirit of that idea, I thought it’d be fun to explore some similar “trick photography.”

The Eiffel Tower in your hand? Sure!

The Statue of Liberty smooshing helplessly between your fingers? Of course.

I’m asking you, faithful readers, to go forth and seek out fun photos or create some of your own. Why not post them to the ModCloth Photo School Flickr page?

If need be, check out the awesome Flickr group, I Crush Your Head, for a little inspiration.

    I stumbled upon this site in high school, which at the time was hilarious: http://web.archive.org/web/20040807064228/http://www.personal.psu.edu/users/j/b/jbc162/Jason/

    Surprisingly enough, I went on to date the guy in the white shirt.

    my friends and i were caroling with school, and i realized that the angle was just right for this picture… it was pretty much accidental, too.

    Can I just say that I LOVE LOVE LOVE Kids in the Hall? It was so wacky, but pure genius.
