I always like those images with very narrow depth of sharpness. What was even nicer, and many times confusing, was that sharp area was not parallel with the surface if the image (negative, sensor). That gave a lot of time that feel of small word. Something you may remember from your childhood.
When as a small boy, I was playing with toys on the carpet and watching them from side, very very closely. From that position they seems to be big like a real things. Big cars, buildings, trees and so on. The only rare thing was that only very little was in focus as I was so close to them, lying on that carpet.
Following image reminds me that kind of view. Maybe it can bring some memories to you as well.
