Amazing photos of Enzo Ferrari toy that don’t look like toy

Posted by Knonie

It was a pleasant cloudy afternoon, a nice day for capturing sunset, and I got an idea of using my toy car model of Enzo Ferrari for a photo shoot against this sky background. It gives a feeling of “large” size and that 1:43 toy no longer appears as a toy model. Thanks to Hot Wheels for creating such a high quality replica.

Funky and Strong toy cars photos. Hot Haulers from Hot Wheels

Posted by Knonie

Although as a child, I wasn’t much keen about toy cars but I always liked them. And now as a grown up [or a little elder than grown ups], I love to have some toy cars in my collection. Vehicles, one of the most useful inventions, also serve as objects of beauty and class. Owning these little toy cars serves as an appreciation of these objects of design and style. Vibrant colors, fine finishes and quality is what makes me collect cars from Hot Wheels.

Recently I took photos of 5-pack “Hot Haulers” from Hot Wheels. Name of each vehicle is written in the caption. Click image to view larger version.

Enzo Ferrari by Hot Wheels—Beautiful replica toy car

Posted by Knonie

Update: I have taken even better photos of this toy car against sunset, so don’t forget to view the photos of Enzo Ferrari toy car here.

—————————————–

Having a size ratio of 1:43 of the Actual Enzo Ferrari, this Official Ferrari product is crafted by Hot Wheels. It is as graceful as it should be, up to all the minute details that catch your eyes. It’s attached to a black plastic plinth, that really makes it look like a souvenir.

Below are few of the photos I took

Since it’s not really a playing model of Enzo Ferrari, “For the adult collector” is clearly mentioned on the box that , that makes this Ferrari sound like something 18+

Relationships, Cars and Butterflies…

Posted by Knonie

You don’t have to worry about relationship issues all the time. Relationships are relationships, what else do you expect them to be?! Some are fast running cars, others are slow, some even refuse to run after sometime. But relationships are not cars, they are even worse if they don’t run–Only if you worry about them… but relationships are relationships, not cars.

It’s mid March––Spring. I just spotted a white butterfly, the first of this season. It was weary and must be looking for some place to lay eggs before it dies. They are beautiful creatures, who’re never even able to see their babies growing during their lives. They propagate just for us. They have a short life, but they spread the beauty and color all around. We like them, but they are not important at all. For us, cars are more important…
