London's landmarks are great and everything – but unless you've got an eager friend or out-of-town relative coming to visit, you rarely stop to look at them. But London-based photographer Rich McCor decided to try being a tourist in his own city with a project focusing on the city's landmarks. But because no one needs to see another perfectly filtered photo of Big Ben, he mixed things up a bit by using intricate paper cutouts to transform the sights into something else. He started by giving the 156 year-old Big Ben a modern update and turning it into a wristwatch:
He also included a London fact with some of his pictures – this one was inspired by Oswald Laurence, who did the original 'Mind the Gap' announcement, which was eventually only used at Embankment. His wife used to visit the station every day after he died so she could hear his voice and although it was briefly changed it to a digital announcement, the original one was reinstated after his wife contacted TfL. Awww.
Once you've seen one picture of the London Eye, you've pretty much seen them all. Until now.

And here he is cracking open a bottle of fizz at Tower Bridge:
