This week, appreciate the tiny things in life.

During a fall visit to Wiesbaden, Germany, I strolled the streets of Altstadt — the Old Town — and came upon a miniature, three-dimensional map of the city center. I peered down at the sculpture, following tiny avenues, turning tiny corners, and studying the details of facades and roofs.

I located where I was staying — not far from Wiesbaden’s iconic Marktkirche, or Market Church — and traced various routes through the town, engrossed and giddy. I’ve always loved tiny versions of things: toys and collectibles, furry animals, even houses.

In this week’s challenge, show us tiny. Capture something at a smaller scale. Create your own miniature scene. Or experiment with the tilt-shift technique — Instagram and other apps have this built-in tool.

You can also interpret the theme in other ways by capturing your favorite tiny things — from your baby’s hands to belongings that are special to you — or documenting a small, quiet moment in your day. Have fun!

  1. During my recent travels through the villages of India, I was lucky to meet and interact with many an inspiring personalities who works to improve the life of rural poor and empower women and marginalized communities.

    Slowly but surely a network of these tiny beads are getting formed and the positive impact is being felt in areas of community based tourism, sustainable production and development etc;

    Let me share an image here for this week’s photo challenge where one of our community coordinator who tirelessly works with the weavers community in and around Mysore, raises some serious points and initiates a debate…

    Have a nice day 🙂
