This plane photography series may look realistic, but it's snapped using a toy plane. A Macau-based web designer named Varun Thota, who snapped the photos, looks like like he is placing his hands in the air simultaneously with a passing airplane. In reality, he is holding a toy plane up in the air and positioning it so that it appears to be at a high-altitude.

The fun photo series ‘#mytoyplane’ features "aircrafts" soaring above skyscrapers, city streets and the countryside. The designer used an "Airbus A330" toy plane for the photos, which he discovered inside a Kinder chocolate egg. He also wants people to create their own '#mytoyplan' captures and share them with him and others on the Internet by using the same hash-tag.
