Now Holland is bathing in summery weather, my mind keeps drifting to summer holidays.
While sitting in my office, I sometimes take a few minutes to imagine visiting Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia… ahhh… the Maldives – if only!
Or I go over a few of the photos from India that I have on my iPad. Did you know it is proven that you can make yourself feel happier by looking at old photos of things that you have good memories of? See. Love. Remember indeed!
I don’t know why my daydreaming always takes me to Asia. It’s a continent that has this unexplained appeal to me…
One of the photos that never fails to make me smile is this one of a bright pink Padmini. I like the contrast with the blue and yellow. And the idea of driving around in this Barbie Mobile seems awesome, as the Padmini is simply adorable.
I remember taking the picture was also a lot of fun!
At the time I had my ultra-wide angle lens attached to my camera, so I used it at 15 mm. When I bought the lens I had already done some research on how best to use it. Actually I had expected to be able to just ‘squeeze more’ into the frame (which I can by the way, but usually it doesn’t look nicer), but instead it was suggested to use the lens as a way to get closer.
So here I saw this supercute tiny pink car. And I went all up close, on my knees, bending down, almost being head on with the bumper. You wouldn’t say now, would you!? But I think it worked! It seems to make the car actually appear bigger than it was…
I must have looked ridiculous though… silly tourists 😉
