stop watch-2 Photos/Illustrations: Tineke Meirink

Dutch artist Tineke Meirink’s Stop:watch series is a collection of adorable drawings over otherwise mundane photos of buildings, infrastructure, and other uninteresting items “such as litter and bird-droppings.”

As Meirink explains on her website, everyday landscapes are “just more fun when you take a closer look.” So, much like how one sees imagery in clouds, an apartment rooftop evokes a crop-wielding horse jockey, while building vents resemble a pair of gangly legs.

It’s a lovely series. Here are our favorites:
