Instagram of the Day: Collages with Paper Cutouts

Designer RIch McCor puts silhouettes on top on the usual objects.

28-year-old British designer Rich McCor posts on his account @paperboyo photographs created with the help of paper cutouts, where London Eye turns into a bicycle wheel, and city fountains into champagne splash.

“I would love to somehow make this hobby into a career, and if it involves travelling to places to shoot these images then that would be a dream come true”, — the author said in his Daily Mail interview.

Towards the end of WWI, France built a ‘Second Paris’ near the capital city to confuse German pilots. It was located near the town of Maisons-Laffitte, on a stretch of the River Seine. As well as replicas of iconic landmarks, including the Arc de Triomphe, it even had sham streets lined with electric lights so that from the sky it would look like a real city.

Novelists James Joyce and Ernest Hemingway were drinking buddies in Paris- often picking fights on their drunken nights out. Famously, Hemingway took a urinal from his favourite bar in Paris and had it installed into his American abode, arguing that he had "pissed away" so much money into the urinal that he owned it #montmartre #basiliquedusacrecoeur #hemingway #karate #silhouette #instaart #paris #parisjetaime #parisian #topparisphoto #visitparis #parismaville @paris_tourisme #igersparis #loves_paris #igersfrance #instagram #forcedperspective #citytrip #wanderlust #travel #adventure #passionpassport #architecture #travelandlife #intrepidtravel #adventureinstagoodmyphoto #guardiancities #guardiantravelsnaps #bestintravel

On the aquatic theme- Amsterdam was originally a fishing village, it took its name from the river Amstel and the dam that was built in 1220 to avoid floods from the Zuidersee entering the islands #lonelyplanet @lonelyplanet #lpkids #amsterdam #amsterdamcity #traveladdict #amstergram #citytrip #thankyouamsterdam #igersamsterdam #loves_amsterdam #awesomeamsterdam #iamsterdam #wanderlust #travelgram #instaphoto #travel #adventure #web #spider #maritimemusuem #silhouette #bluesky #instaart #holiday #holland #netherlands #hetscheepvaartmusuem #architecture #geefmijmaaramsterdam #amsterdamworld

Playing in the fountains at Somerset House. Fun fact- Soon after the Royal Society moved in to Somerset House they identified a new planet in the solar system. It was originally given the name 'Georgium Sidus' (after the King at the time) which is only slightly less ridiculous than the name it eventually ended up with; 'Uranus' #london #somersethouse #creative_camera #bbctravel #photography #instaphoto #fantastic_earth #mytinyatlas #theglobewanderer #ourplanetdaily #letsgosomewhere #passionpassport #lifeofadventure @earthfocus @discoverearth #thisislondon #londonlife #cityoflondon #instalondon #surf #surfing #fountains #travel #sea #lifeofadventure #streetart #instaart #art #silhouette #timeoutlondon #londonlive @londonontheinside #londonforyou

Copenhagen's Cirkelbroen being abducted by Aliens: Shot for #lpkids (@lonelyplanet's brand for little adventurers). In the distance behind the bridge is Tivoli, an amusement park commissioned by the King in 1843 so that the public could go amuse themselves and "think less about politics". Walt Disney visited Tivoli and felt inspired. Not long after he created Disneyland. #architecture #architecturelovers #copenhagen #cirkelbroen #københavn #københavnskommune #olufureliasson #cirkelbroencopenhagen #cirkelbro #scenography #copenhague #art #bridge #lpkids #lonelyplanet #copenhagen #denmark #kopenhagen #visitcopenhagen #VisitDenmark #somewhereincopenhagen #citytrip

Autumn is coming (to misquote Jon Snow). For the last 40 years Copenhagen has often come top of international happiness surveys. They even have a special word for a specific type of happiness; "hygge". It's used to describe the cosy feeling of togetherness which gets them through winter. In Britain I think the closest we have is "that post Sunday-roast, feeling lazy, get me a cup of tea 'cos I just want to lounge on the sofa" feeling. "Hygge" is definitely more succinct #copenhagen #denmark #kopenhagen #visitcopenhagen #VisitDenmark #somewhereincopenhagen #citytrip #hygge #igerscopenhagen #wanderlust #travel #adventure #passionpassport #featuremevisitcopenhagen #sharingcph #paperart #travelandlife #nature #autumn #bestintravel #bbctravel #adventure #instagoodmyphoto #guardiancities #guardiantravelsnaps #københavn #silhouette #photography #leaf #ballet #dance @royalcopenhagen
