Awesomest Image du Jour XLVIII

Check this out:

Swiss artist Corinne Vionnet takes 200 to 300 similar images of a famous monument -- taken by 200 to 300 unique individuals --and layers them one on top of another, creating this ghostly, impressionistic composite.

Very haunting.

Now I'll have to see if I have this same shot of the entrance to the Forbidden City in Beijing in my shoebox at home....
