How would the World look if you where the size of a subatomic particle? This is a serious question! Just try to describe as best as you can what would everything look like if you where that size.

As always with scale shifts distant objects "look" much the same as normal.  The only difference would be in the sight of small local objects. 

However the wavelength of the radiation used and the nature of the sensor at the scale of the objects is important.

For example it is likely that the questioner is considering ordinary light. 

At the scale of a subatomic particle this produces such poor resolution that all that could be detected was the basic level of radiation around at that frequency rather than any image of the surroundings of the particle.
