Small Is Beautiful

Our brain are pattern recognizing machines. This allows us to function in environments where the amount of input is almost endless. Just think how you can focus on your friend's voice in the middle of a busy and noisy shopping center around Christmas time!

In a way, photography is about taking a step further and looking past the obvious to find something nice. Using a macro/micro lens, extension tubes or equivalent function on a point-and-shoot camera, this becomes very relevant, as you are looking for 'small things' that would look big. I seen 3x2m prints of small pebbles in art galleries, so blowing things up can be a lot of fun, firing your and your audience's perspective. Here are some shots I took one cloudy morning last week. They were all shot within 150m of my apartment.
