Thursday’s Special: Minuscule — Three types

Some items are minuscule only because of the distance from which they are viewed. Looking down people look smaller than their actual size.

Where an item such as chairs and buildings are gigantic the other normal sized item takes on the appearance of being minuscule, such as above with the giant chair and tiny person and bus. Below the people are gigantic and the buildings take on a minuscule appearance.

About Irene Waters 19 Writer Memoirist

I began my working career as a reluctant potato peeler whilst waiting to commence my training as a student nurse. On completion I worked mainly in intensive care/coronary care; finishing my hospital career as clinical nurse educator in intensive care. A life changing period as a resort owner/manager on the island of Tanna in Vanuatu was followed by recovery time as a farmer at Bucca Wauka. Having discovered I was no farmer and vowing never again to own an animal bigger than myself I took on the Barrington General Store. Here we also ran a five star restaurant. Working the shop of a day 7am - 6pm followed by the restaurant until late was surprisingly more stressful than Tanna. On the sale we decided to retire and renovate our house with the help of a builder friend. Now believing we knew everything about building we set to constructing our own house. Just finished a coal mine decided to set up in our backyard. Definitely time to retire we moved to Queensland. I had been writing a manuscript for some time. In the desire to complete this I enrolled in a post grad certificate in creative Industries which I completed 2013. Commenced a masters by research in 2014.

  4. Love the castle with the follow-up photos that show its true size. Also, I love photos like the first one–reminds me of an Escher drawing.

    What a fun miniscule castle! And the spider weaving is so beautiful. It’s all about perspective, isn’t it?
