I’m impressed by how seamlessly the 3D foreground blends into the 2D backdrop in these life-sized dioramas from the Natural History Museum. Of course it’s even harder to tell them apart as photos — and low quality cell phone photos at that — but it was hard in person too!

.Also, what is with this twice-reflected mini-landscape in the old wing of the museum? Why do they show it to you through a periscope instead of directly? Whatever the reason, I’m drawn to the window-within-a-window effect. It’s like seeing into another world.
