Round Robin Challenge: Tiny Things

For this particular Challenge, though, we're going with one that was suggested by, well, me! Way back in September 2007, I came up with the following:

Tiny Things

The idea here is to photograph very small inanimate objects - not details and closeups of larger things, but self-contained little items we see and take for granted. It should be interesting to take the expertise some Robins have with tiny critters, and apply it to objects that can't fly away. And the rest of us have the photographic challenge of learning to focus on the miniature world.


Eight months later, though, I'm thinking it was probably rash of me to exclude tiny living things, or things that were once alive. So if you want to photograph a bee, a beetle or a baby guppy, be my guest!


I'm playing, but I'm out of town, no laptop, so no one will hear from me for the next couple of days. I decided to stick with inanimate objects, and chose the Hats we use when we play Mexican Train. We've been playing for about 8 years, and have developed our own set of house rules, so if you play with us, we'll be glad to teach your how.







Be sure to visit all the Robins.

What fun! Very clever to use the dominoes as a background to give a sense of scale.

I love your photos! They are all so cute and look like so much fun to play with. I love the little heart people. Very fun indeed!

OUTSTANDING!

The tiny objects, posted on the dominios is so artsy! You did a great job with this! I really liked them all, but the last one is especially enjoyable. I could see that one made into a poster! It's humorous, and inspiring as well. Just super!

Too cool. I'll bite, what is Mexican train? I'm going to have to google it when I finish here.

I want the little turtles ! they are sooo cute !!

Karen Funk Blocher said...

Oh, those are fabulous! I was going to say the turtles are my favorites, but then I saw the lead figures, and the D12s, and the giys at the end. And you intrigue me mightily with a game I've never heard of, much less with house rules!

Using the dominoes was a great idea. Not only colorful but gives perspective as well.

Pamela said...

Darn -- I missed this again. Sigh-- next month I hope.

We love that game at our house. I hereby challenge you to a train-off. Ha ha ha ha.
