A photographer who goes by the name Paperboyo (real name Rich McCor) took this photo, and many more like it. Using paper cut-outs placed at just the right angles, McCor’s photos add an element of whimsy to the world’s famous landmarks. The project began when McCor was thinking of ways to photograph the iconic landmarks of London ‘in an original way.’ Spurred on by the enthusiasm of those who saw his photos, he quickly added more like these to his portfolio. As of this writing, there are no known incidents of a giant octopus taking over Rome’s Colosseum.
