Lens -Artists Photo Challenge #151: From Large to Small

This post is part of Lens-Artists photo challenge by Pattimoed- From large to small

For this Challenge Pattimoed says

“This week, we’re thinking about size–from large to small. For this challenge, pick a color and select several photos that feature that color.  Start with a photo of a big subject in that color (for example, a wall) and move all the way down to a small subject in that same color (for example, an earring)”.

So we have two things to do.

Choosing a colour and showing images having that colour, from large to small.

I have chosen colour blue

“Blue colour is everlastingly appointed by the deity to be a source of delight” John Ruskin


“Design is not just what it looks like, design is how it works” Steve Job

In the image above you can notice the tall pillar with beautifully designed, aesthetic blue coloured art and incidentally, one of the ladies’ shirt appears to have blue colour.



“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication” Leonardo Da Vinci

In the above photograph, you can notice that chair with the blue coloured cushion. And the gentleman on the left is wearing blue coloured hand gloves.



There are five known gyres spinning around in our world’s oceans. A gyre is a slowly moving spiral of currents created by a high pressure system of air currents. A spinning soup, so to speak, is made of what exists in the water. And in this case, the gyres are spinning with millions of tons of our discarded and forgotten about plastic waste!   Brandon Boyd (trvst,world)

In the above image, a blue coloured plastic mug is seen hung to the iron grill. 

And plastic material seen everywhere and used extensively, though people are aware of the pollution & environmental disaster it is causing.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    Outstanding accents.
    Here is a shell for you
    Inside you’ll hear a sigh
    A foggy lullaby
    There is your song from me” —Blue by Joni Mitchell

    “And therefore, first of all, I tell you, earnestly and authoritatively (I know I am right in this,) you must get into the habit of looking intensely at words, and assuring yourself of their meaning, syllable by syllable – nay, letter by letter. For though it is only by reason of the opposition of letters in the function of signs, to sounds in the function of signs, that the study of books is called “literature,” and that a man versed in it is called, by the consent of nations, a man of letters instead of a man of books, or of words, you may yet connect with that accidental nomenclature this real fact: – that you might read all the books in the British Museum (if you could live long enough) and remain an utterly “illiterate,” uneducated person; but that if you read ten pages of a good book, letter by letter, – that is to say, with real accuracy, – you are forevermore in some measure an educated person.” —John Ruskin [Emphases mine. One of my favorite Ruskin quotes, from Of Kings and Sesame. -JohnRH]

      What a great feeling!
      The lovely Blue song by Joni Mitchell.
      A great love song with a deep thoughts about ‘Blue’
      The sad feelings so well expressed especially about relationships.

      Thank you John for reminding us of this 1971 jewel.

      Another Gem from John Ruskin, thank you for this quote too John.
      You made my day John.
      Thank you.
