Visiting iconic movie sets may be an ordinary tourist activity for film geeks, but Finnish blogger trio Fangirl Quest has turned the ritual into an art with their sceneframing series. Using their tablets and phones, Tiia, Satu, and Johanna set out to compare real life locations with what was seen on film in their favorite scenes.

As lovers of movies, television and travel, the girls were inspired to see places they wouldn't necessarily find in travel guides in order to share their experiences with other film and travel enthusiasts. The scene-framing photos from the girls' first trip across the UK were quick to gain over 60,000 shares on social media. The girls used this momentum to crowdfund a 7,500 mile road trip across North America.

Their rapidly expanding collection includes shots from Forrest Gump (at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C.), The Avengers (Central Park), Star Trek (Golden Gate Bridge) and Game of Thrones (Northern Ireland), and many more.
