Let me know which is your favorite.
The two photographs in the Lens section are my interpretation of WordPress’ Weekly Challenge: Big. Photograph one is the quintessential commentary on the human ego. A large outdoor sculpture puffs up the two letters “Me” with such pizzazz that we cringe and smile at the implications. Photograph two is an experiment with my iPhone. I was taking close-ups of seeds. Mustard seeds are teeny tiny bursts of expansive flavor, and I was astonished at their range of color.
Both of my photographs are exemplary of the theme. Each image captivates the notion of big from different viewpoints: 1. the big that explodes and exploits the notion of the self; and, 2. the small that can be seen in its larger version: an illusion of big.
