This weekend’s prompt was #WHPteatime, which asked participants to capture beautiful photos and videos about tea. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.
Cartoon Characters Brought to Life with @francoisdourlen
For more childlike plays on the world around him, follow @francoisdourlen on Instagram.
“It’s not a question of the camera lens, just a question of the moment, imagination and expression,” says Instagrammer François Dourlen (@francoisdourlen), a teacher from Normandy, France. Inspired by the daily scenes around him, François is reminded of characters from popular culture and animation films. “I don’t really choose photos to put with the background,” he explains. “The background makes me think about pictures I’ve seen.”
His playful style inserts cartoon characters on real life backgrounds to delight his followers—and himself. He adds: “My message to the world is: ‘Do not forget to look at the world through a child’s eyes.’”
