A Miniature Great Wall

….or so it seems.

I’m a sucker for the photography technique called “tilt-shift,” in which the subject of a photo or film appears to be in miniature.

The YouTube Channel Little Big World has several tilt-shift videos on China, including this one called “Little Big Wall of China.”

(email readers, click here to watch the video on YouTube)

Anyone who has visited me in China will recognize this section of the Great Wall at Mutianyu. The only thing missing in the clip, however, is the ride down on the alpine slide!

Oh, and why the filmmaker chose “Stars and Stripes Forever” is beyond me!

  1. Why Stars and Stripes? Perhaps for the same reason America the Beautiful was chosen for the digital re-creation of a Chinese spaceship?
