Weekly photo challenge: Big

Last week, I participated for the first time in the Weekly photo challenge of The Daily Post at WordPress, with the happy challenge. I liked being part of a bigger challenge, shared with other bloggers. Also, it challenged me to look at my photos differently. It was like seeing my photos through new eyes. I like it! So this week I’m going to participate again.

This week’s challenge

BIG. It’s larger than life, it’s unexpected, it’s the protagonist in a scene. It’s big. It often helps to have some normal object as part of the scene so people can understand the scale, as I did in this picture of a GIANT mortadella in the grocery store. It must have been 10 feet long. 

Share a picture which means BIG to you! 

Big is the word!

Looking through my Thailand photos from last year, I came across some nice examples of BIG. From bigger than big buddha’s in Ayuthaya to the Giant Guards in the Grand Palace in Bangkok. In Khao Yai National Park, I saw the enormous strangling fig trees and a big scorpion. It may not look so big compared to the buddha’s, but I can tell you, face to face with that scorpion, it looked huge!

    1. Thank you! Yes, it was huge! When the guide asked me if he could place it at my hand, I kindly declined. Apperently it wasn’t more dangerous than a regular wasp. But I thought, better be save than sorry, since we were in the middle of nowhere in the jungle. I did go close enough to take the shot, though!

    1. Exactly! I didn’t get it that other people were actually holding the scorpion. But their braveness delivered me a great photo 🙂
