This artist looks to add a bit of whimsical life into his photos.

Italian illustrator, Luciano Cina, took boring photos of his hometown of Turin, Italy and creatively turned them into livelier works of art by adding some touches to them. The street photos were your normal everyday photos of stuff that we’ve all seen, before he came up with his inventive idea that makes them pretty cool.

In essence, the talented artist adds his lighthearted doodles on these mundane photos and turns them into enthralling shadows of their previous selves. In one of his pictures, Luciano shows a bird flying over a river, but creatively adds a whale so that it appears as if the bird is pulling the giant mammal. Another one shows a massive stadium, but Luciano adds other parts of a turtle’s body to make it appear like a real-life turtle.
