This photo is is titled “it’s a miniature world” for good reason — it’s nice use of the tilt-shift method of photography that makes real objects look like toys. Go ahead and guess where it was taken — answer is after the jump.

The photo was taken in Bangkok, Thailand, with a Canon EOS 1DS Mark III. It was exposed at 1/500th of a second with an aperture of f/1.2 and a focal length of 50 mm. The low aperture helped keep much of the frame out of focus.
