~ Lens-Artists Challenge #16 – Big Can Be Beautiful Too! ~

Big (like small) is always relative…


…and, subject to one’s perspective! Though the tower and power lines above, may be considered an ugly intrusion, the electricity they conduct safely across large swaths of terrain provide safety, warmth and light to many homes and businesses.


To those who regularly fish the oceans and rivers for BIG fish, this one may seem like small fry. To me, this lake trout (Mackinaw) is the biggest I’ve caught in a long time!

IMG_9432How big is this nest?

Featured in the front yard of a home in Portland, this folk-art is large enough for two or three small children or one adult to nestle into. Dandelions provide relative scale!

IMG_9185On its own, this could be “any old egg.” In my hand it is clearly, “one big egg!” Found on the beach, the underside is broken where a Bald Eagle chick emerged.


The eagle egg shell was discovered here, on Long Beach, WA. Many of the photos I’ve taken at Long Beach fail to give a sense of how big it is! In this one from my archives, the two women rushing to greet one another in the distance, give us a sense of scale.
