Seeing life as dollhouses and marshmallow men

  
One of the superpowers that photography gives you is the ability to make the tiny enormous and the gargantuan miniature. Like a child with a dollhouse, you gain a kind of control over the scale and proportions of the world. 

Sometimes I wish I could exercise this power in my life: make the problems that appear insurmountable tiny with a burst of a ray gun, a honey-I-shrunk-the-kids moment. Other times I wish I could inflate things in my life like the Ghostbusters Stay Puft marshmallow man or the giant kitten in The Goodies, so I could realise the importance of these things and remember their prominence. Despite the recent arrival of Comicon in town, I may not have a superpower, but photography does gift me with the power to reimagine my world and the problems, highlights and priorities of my life.

  1. This is fantastic, I love the contrast between the structure and bleakness of the building and the soft peachy flower. If I were to offer any feedback it would be that I feel a bit more light on the flower would have helped bring out its colour but it is genuinely a great photo for lots of reasons.
