Round Robin Challenge: Tiny Things

This challenge is now over, thank you for playing!

Hello again, Robins! I went diving in our suggestion pool today, and I'm glad to report that it's positively overflowing with cool topics right now. We're also starting to see some reruns and recurring themes, with different people coming up with similar ideas, sometimes the same day! I'm sure we'll get to many of these topics in the weeks and months ahead.

For this particular Challenge, though, we're going with one that was suggested by, well, me! Way back in September 2007, I came up with the following:

Tiny Things

The idea here is to photograph very small inanimate objects - not details and closeups of larger things, but self-contained little items we see and take for granted. It should be interesting to take the expertise some Robins have with tiny critters, and apply it to objects that can't fly away. And the rest of us have the photographic challenge of learning to focus on the miniature world.

Eight months later, though, I'm thinking it was probably rash of me to exclude tiny living things, or things that were once alive. So if you want to photograph a bee, a beetle or a baby guppy, be my guest!


The date for this Challenge is Saturday, May 31st, 2008. As always, we ask you not to post before that date, whenever it arrives where you live. You may post up to six days later, but for the sake of people finding your entry, on the date is best.

To help us compile the linking list as quickly and accurately as possible, please RSVP in the comments thread using the following format:

Yes, I'll play! Come into my parlor!

Please use the three line format as above, even if your login already includes your name and a link. Also, please proofread for typos. Thanks!

That's all for now, folks! Be on the lookout for tiny things, and go be photographers! We'll meet all back here on Saturday, May 31st, ready to view each other's tiny portfolios.

Yay! Another excuse to use my macro setting!
Sign me up.

The only problem is I have already used my tiny shells for one of the challenges. And all my tiny buttons.
