The challenge said to find shots that weren’t just BIG but “made your jaws drop”. Hmmmm. A “wow moment”? Not simple to find.
I thought of slides of Fingal’s Cave in the Hebrides from a trip with my parents but that would mean digging in a distant closet. I went in a rowboat without a life preserver but they said the water was so cold you wouldn’t make it anyway.
Then I found the photos from a Washington trip to Dry Falls which isn’t the Grand Canyon but still astounding- well, it is when you are standing there drinking it all in. The postcard shot I managed doesn’t capture the awe of the scene. Or the grandness. Maybe tomorrow. The Western vistas just don’t accompany the one below.
Thinking of a grand moment in life, flipping through fading albums of photos made from actual FILM, I found the one to answer the grand challenge for me. A picture of a picture, true and how about that turquoise woven web lawn chair?
If I had to retitle it, I would call it “love”.
