Weekly Photo Challenge: BiG

The challenge is SO fun this week! Think BIG.

“Few women have ever been able to resist the temptation to try on a hat
and discover in the mirror a person they never suspected was there.
A hat alters the image we have of ourselves,
and the image others see as well.
For the hours we wear it,
it brings out different dimensions in our personality,
much as a costume aids an actress in her role.”

© Joy Cannis 2012“When we are stricken and cannot bear our lives any longer,
a tree has something to say to us: Be still! Be still! Look at me!
Life is not easy, life is not difficult. Those are childish thoughts.
Let God speak within you, and your thoughts will grow silent.
You are anxious because your path leads away from mother and home.
But every step and every day lead you back again to the mother.
Home is neither here nor there.
Home is within you, or home is nowhere at all.”
~ Hermann Hesse

    • Aw, thank you.
      I have found that when I am in the moment of creating it doesn’t feel like effort at all. This was a really fun challenge. I enjoyed everything about it 🙂

    • Thank you!
      I love that tree. There’s nothing like standing under its moss adorned branches. It’s just so beautiful. The picture does not do it justice, but I tried.

    • Thank you, Cedric!
      I love, love, love that hat. It’s rather impossible not to draw attention when wearing it. To say that it makes a statement is understating the obvious. 😉

  15. I love these photos – it’s early morning Saturday in Australia, and I’m trying to wake up. Your photos helped and now I want to go out with my camera and capture “big” – in whatever shape/form that comes my way. Your photos evoke the feelings of being alive and freshness. 🙂

Now it's your turn to talk
