Odd Shots on Monday--Out of Proportion

This is the home of Odd Shots. You can post a comment on this Odd Shot to let others know you are in the game. All the details are just a click away at the Odd Shots camera logo in the side bar.

We have traveled quite a bit this summer in with our new Little Guy trailer. Wherever we go, it gets attention--and all of it positive except for one redneck who was laughing at its size as he pulled away in his gas guzzler. (Ha, ha! We will laugh when we meet you at the pump.)

But when we pull into a rest area to stretch our legs, visit the facilities, and switch drivers, we now have to park in the trucks and trailers section. Every time I see our rig it looks so oddly tiny next to the semis and huge RVs.


But I laugh and remember, "why spend more when you can have less?"
~
I am actually gone again as this posts. It seems almost as if we were hummingbirds this summer--never lighting at any time for long. We will be back later today. There are still more adventures ahead--but not till later in the week. I wonder what oddity I will find...

You've learned to think small, when it comes to vacations.

Well done with an odd shot! Very cute trailer - I've definitely not seen one like that around LA. Have a fun trip & bring back some more interesting pics.

Here in Oz we call our permanent "holiday in a caravan" people "Grey Nomads". It is a lifestyle all of its own. Many also belong to the pretend organisation "SKIN" (Spend Kids Inheritance Now!"

I love your little trailer. THe difference in sizes does make it an odd shot.

Poor Little Guy!
He does look tiny. Great shot for odd shots. Mine is all about context and perspective too.

Have a safe journey - and be sure to laugh at the pumps. ;0)

Denise said...

Wonderful Katney, love your little travelling companion!

Paulie said...

For being tiny, it sure holds a lot besides room for two to sleep. It suits your traveling. . . but it does look strange among the big rigs. I would laugh right back at the big rigs who guzzle all that gas.

Best things come in small packages.

Less is definitely more, Katney.

Travel safe!

Gypsy at heart said...

Do you sleep in it? Looks sufficient for traveling, especially if you spend your non-sleeping time out & about!

Odd beside others, cute unto itself.

It looks like an ideal RV for the times we're living in now. And, it's fun to get some attention even if on rare occasions its not all positive. Fine shot.

Cute little trailer. We had one like that when my kids were small. They slept in the trailer and we slept in a pup tent beside it. They are very handy!
