I got stuck with yesterday’s assignment on Big. I ran out of big ideas. Sure, there were lots of big things I could take a picture of but they just weren’t big on creativity.
So, I decided to break the rules a little bit. Instead of taking a photograph of something massive, I decided on this guy’s big belly. Why not? It’s big. And he is big on laughter and happiness.
Meet the Laughing Buddha. The Chinese believe that rubbing his big belly brings good fortune and wealth. I definitely would want that!
The assignment also called for experimenting with point of view. This jolly fella fits right in the palm of my hand, but because I shot him up close, he appears bigger than he actually is.
Later during the day, my hubby and I went to the beach. It was a perfect day to go out and watch the sunset. Upon reaching the beach front, we were greeted with this view.
Big, wide, open spaces of sea, sand and sky. Ah, this is what I need at the moment! Breathing in the fresh ocean air, feeling that salty breeze kiss my skin and walking barefoot on soft golden sand while the sea gulls soar and the waves crash on the shore. This is the Atlantic Ocean. Big. Majestic. Powerful.
Between the big belly and the big ocean, there is a whole lot of big difference.
