15-02-06 Weekly Photo Challenge: Scale

“Photographs, which fiddle with the scale of the world, themselves get reduced, blown up, cropped, retouched, doctored, tricked out.”

Susan Sontag

The word of the week: ScaLe in the sense of an object in relation to its surround. I thought that this picture of Abigail from our Grand Canyon trip quite fit the bill.

Travel Theme: Close Up (Far Away)

Close Up

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.” 
Susan Sontag
