Weekly Photo Challenge: Big

Weekly Photo Challenge: Big and the photo example was a ten foot long cheese.

A guest blogger today- my son Mark took this photo of Murphy by using forced perspective, making him appear BIG.  Mark had been reading about forced perspective in Imagineering Disney brochures describing  how this is done at the Disney Theme Parks.  I tried the technique today with Flat Ruthie

  12. This is interesting. And suggests that “big” is all a matter of perspective

  13. Well I always thought Murphy was larger than life anyway!

  14. I love it! What a great picture of Mr. Murphy. He’s a pretty cool guy anyway; but this just adds to his “wow” factor.
