Not too big, not too small

This week's Weekly Photo Challenge at The Daily post at wordpress.com is "Big"

Isn't whether something is big or small all matter of perspective? How we look at it? And from what angle?

We can view anything as being so big as to be unknowable, undoable and insurmountable. If we find ourselves leaning on viewing things that way, maybe we need to straighten up and stand tall so our landscape no longer towers over us. It might just be that the solution to a lot of problems could be better posture, better perspective and a better attitude.

On the flip side we can decide that a lot of things we come across are quite small, and dismiss them as insignificant. If we race through life like that, we risk missing the small details that make all the difference. We could end up overlooking something of someone that holds the key to truths. If we are repeat abusers of this kind of perspective, we need to learn to slow down, get off our horse and stop to look around, paying close attention. Who knows how much we could gain if we decide to get out of the race.

Armed with this knowledge of the dangers of a faulty perspective, we should go out today and re-evaluate what's in front of us and make it JUST THE RIGHT SIZE.

Nice one with finding the right size! A very skilfully captured moment in two perspectives!

You know, I almost put up a picture of the Leaning tower on my blog for this theme :-)
