Tiny things delight me.
Little mini cupcakes, tiny envelopes, small trinkets - i have always been drawn to the Tiny. Kelly made a comment on one of my recent posts saying that when she was little, she would imagine shrinking down to fit into her dollhouse.
My sister and I had similar Miniature Aspirations. Whenever we went on road trips, we played this game where we could pick five things that we drove past that we could shrink down and have as our Mini Kingdom. We had to be careful what we chose though, because we could only pick five things, so we had to make sure not to be hasty with our shrinking powers - we needed to pick the perfect things to make our Mini Kingdom the best. Sometimes I would see a cute baby in a stroller and I would pick that, but then I would kick myself when we drove past a hospital that I knew would be full of cute babies that I could have shrunk instead.
Perhaps this is why I love Tilt Shift so much. It's a photography technique where the perspective and depth of field is set in a way that makes whatever you photograph appear tiny. And for those of us who don't have the patience, I came across this Tilt Shift Maker website through How About Orange back in May that will do it for you. Here are some of my photos that I have miniaturized.
I would love it if you'd play this game with me! What five things would you shrink?
