Photographic Scale

Morning at Mather Point. Looking west along Grand Canyon’s south rim.

     Notice the tiny people in this photograph? See them yet?  There, in the upper left of the frame.  They are standing along the railing admiring the enormity of the scene before them.  OK, your brain has done one incredible piece of work. It has spatially put scale to work.

     Space is something we exist in all the time and we do take it for granted. The world around us moves and changes all the time and we blend into it and sometimes forget how incredibly beautiful it can be.  We often see elements, like the Grand Canyon, as a two dimensional image and think, “Wow, that is really big!” The same can be said of images of the night sky and the billions of stars which surround our planet.

     Being part of a larger space can be overwhelming, humbling and some might say spiritual. We believe the Native Americans who inhabit Grand Canyon, Navaho, Havasupai, Hopi and many others who have called the canyon home for hundreds of years are right about this sacred place.  Seeing Grand Canyon in either video or still images does not do it justice.  One has to be there in it’s midst to understand the power and respect it commands.

      It is with great pleasure that we are able to visit such places. To be able to experience something so vast it causes one to pause and think/reflect on what a gift it is.

We appreciate you reading our posts and invite you to share them if you feel so inclined.  If you would like us to feature something specific here on our blog, let us know by contacting us at our Bluberry Productions,LLC web page Thank you again!
