'Holiday Making' is a photo series by Japanese photographer Nobuto Osakabe, who trained his lens on people in the act of enjoying their leisure time, whatever that might mean to them. The photos were captured by Osakabe in a wide variety of settings ranging from parks and fountains to touristy locations. In all the photos, the human subjects look like miniature toys moving around in the sprawling scenery.

Each miniscule human subject is seen roaming across the vast frame, participating in mundane leisure activities identical to those being pursued by people around them. 'Holiday Making' hints at the fact that even while pursuing leisurely activities in a bid to get away from the grind of their daily working lives, humans remain largely predictable and similar.
