Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #11: Small Is Beautiful

For this week’s Lens-Artists Photo Challenge, I choose”Small Is Beautiful “for the theme.

“Photography is a way of feeling, of touching, of loving.

Nara Park, Kyoto, Japan

What you have caught on film is captured forever…

This little baby bird was born and raised in our backyard.

it remembers little things, long after you have forgotten everything.”

— Aaron Siskind

This tiny ladybug showed up after a good rain.

Small wooden plaques like these are common in Japanese Shrines. People write their prayers or wishes carefully on the plaque wishing their loved ones happiness and health.

The wall below was covered with many smaller Japanese characters of love, friendship, happiness, harmony, … They were written by Japanese children. This little girl was looking at the character of love:

Aaron Siskind’s quote also explains why I still value some of my photos for sentimental reasons although they didn’t follow any of classic photographic techniques or didn’t have the right camera setting. 🙂

Looking forward to seeing your interpretations of “small is beautiful”.

  2. Beautiful photographs Amy and I think this one is going to inspire especially the ladies. I will just have to dig deep!
    As for the tiny droplets… The “correct” camera setting couldn’t have improved the last photograph.
    I assume you have checked with Tina that Hurricane Florence has not taken her into orbit. But hey if she is in orbit, it wouldn’t be a problem as she would be in cyberspace.

  3. great idea for a theme….
    and as a teacher – who taught many subjects across all ages – I like the plaques and the child shot – but the leaf one is a showcase photo in this post. Like you flexed some lens muscle with that ending – for lack of a better description – and nice variety overall –
    be back later with my entry –

  5. A great theme for the challenge, Amy – and lovely series of shots! Being a teacher I love children and their curiosity and love for new knowledge. And, as commented on above – a glorious leaf of droplets! I will come back with my entry.

  25. I, too, love the theme. It made me think many beautiful small things. Wonderful photos, as always.
    It’s interesting to see “Do Not Touch” on that wall covered with many smaller Japanese characters of love, friendship, happiness, harmony, … 😉
    Good night.
