Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny

Hmmm… looks like this post is a ‘tiny’ bit off level. I suspected as much.

Not quite perpendicular, either. Now that’s a surprise. Or… not.

  1. Wow. I feel really stupid. I refreshed the picture several times, thinking it was not loading 100%. I was thinking wine glass, because of the tiny bubbles reference. Completely missed the ‘level’ comment. Wow. I really love this picture.

  2. This is such a great interpretation of the theme. I like the composition and the minimalism you used as well. I caught it as a level bubble first without hints. I guess I spent too much time working with tools.

    • Thank you so much for stooping by (and your kind words as well), Amanda!
      I’m glad you saw that! Sometimes I enjoy really abstracting things, but I still like them to be recognizable as well.
      Tools – they’re hard to get away from! 🙂

  3. Very smart take on the challenge. In the ’60’s when my sister was learning to dance the Hula, the teacher just loved teaching the Hula dance for Tiny Bubbles!

    • Thank you very much, sir!
      I thought this one seemed a bit more difficult than the others for some reason!
      I wish I had some dance moves – it’s usually best for everyone involved if I remain seated! 🙂

    • Yeah, I noticed that, too…
      you would expect the lines on both sides to be closer to parallel… maybe I was close to perpendicular, but not at the midpoint? Hmmm… I’m confused.

  4. this is reeeeally strange. i think i might have just zipped through the twilight zone. i saw the image, but there was no text and no other comments, just a box for me to leave a comment. so i did. i said “so what is it that we’re looking at” or something like that, but the second I hit “post comment” i realized what it was and then this texted version popped up with all the other comments. strange, huh!

    • Craziness, J.G.! Wouldn’t it be nice if stuff always loaded the way it was supposed to?! It would be a dream come true… (well, I guess I wouldn’t go quite that far, but it would be nice). 🙂

  5. Wonderfully startling colours. I realised what it was without the hints but not immediately. I like that I had to stop and wonder about it.

    Did you clean the food colouring out of your soft box for this?

    • Thanks very much, S.E.! I’m glad that it isn’t too vague (I was worried it might be).

      Hahaha… there are still a few tiny speckles in there, but it’s better than it was! 🙂

  6. It took me a second to figure out what this was. At first, I thought it was a really cool piece of furniture. It still looks like it could be a really cool piece of furniture. You may have something here…. 🙂 Amazing picture.
