Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny

When I saw the topic for this week’s Photo Challenge, I felt sure I wouldn’t be able to find anything but I decided to look anyway.

While I looked, I thought about the various meanings of tiny, what the word implies. A thing is tiny in relation to something else. This group of kayakers, for example, looks tiny from my vantage point on the bridge and compared to the dinghy and the other boats on the river.

Tiny can also be a name. When I was little, I had a friend whose aunt was called Tiny. I was mystified as to why she was so named but was too young to ask — it would have been considered impolite. Based on our relative ages, I should have been the tiny one! But like everyone else, I ended up calling her Miss Tiny.

I’m always amused when I hear of a very large person — I’ve only seen this in the movies — who’s nicknamed Tiny.

Line at the Eiffel Tower

People waiting on line to buy tickets to go up to the top of the Eiffel Tower look like tiny specks of color when viewed from above — from the second level, I think.

So these are my interpretation of tiny.

  1. That’s the queue for tickets? I hope it was worth it!

    The kayakers are a very clever perspective on the tiny theme.

  3. Yup, it is! I waited for 30-45 minutes. It is worth it — not sure I’d do it again though.
    Thanks, Narelle!

  4. It sure is relative, Marge!

    I’m sure you have something…..
    Thanks for visiting,

  5. Great perspective on Tiny! It’s all relative isn’t it?
    The moon is tiny compared to the sun and yet the moon is so BIG!

    I still am trying to figure out a photo for Tiny…
