the scale

Thankfully, this post is not about the bathroom kind of scale. Although I read about a diet where you’re supposed to throw out the scale – and I thought it was a great idea! Not that I did it.

This is about the scale of two items. And how their juxtaposition can often magnify their difference. Sometimes something small positioned next to something big exaggerates their sizes. The pictures below were taken at The New Orleans City Park. By its lonesome, the tree on the top looks big. Now look closer at the tree below, that’s me standing in front of it. If my theory is correct little me should make the tree appear even bigger.
