Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge: Small Subjects

This ocean ship look small to me.

This week’s Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge (CB&W) topic is Small Subjects.  If it is smaller than a bread box, then it is small.  If there is an elephant standing next to a skyscraper, then the elephant is small.  It’s a matter of how your main subject looks in your photo.  It’s another week you can be creative and have some fun.

For a list of upcoming topics, please see the list at below.  Be creative and challenge yourself.  Look for contrast or highly textured subjects to shoot.

  1. Your last photo is a beauty. The water droplets and texture of the leaf work well together.


  2. I love the variety of subjects you have here. It really makes you think about how even large things can look small in photographs. Imagine the rubber duckie and the cargo ship side by side but the size they both appear in these photos! 🙂


  3. Thank you for selecting me as one of last week’s featured bloggers!
