BIG . . . BIGGER . . . BIGGEST October 12, 2012

The Weekly Photo Challenge is Big.

This is BIG . . .

This is BIGGER . . .

This is BIGGER too . . .

This is BIGGEST . . .

Ever notice how BIG things often emphasize their BIGNESS by stretching their arms WIDE, WIDER, WIDEST . . . except, of course, when they don’t have arms at all?  😉

Aah . . . that’s better!

Thought to Ponder:  Life = a multitude of mundane moments, interspersed with a few glorious moments of revelry.  The secret to happiness . . . find joy in the mundane. Laugh at the absurdities of life.

That’s GINORMOUS! Thanks for the link up . . . I enjoyed CLOWNING around this week. 😀

2. eof737 - October 12, 2012

And funny too… lovely contribution to the challenge Nancy! 😉

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

Thanks, E! As Ed Sullivan said, “it’s a really BIG shoo!” 😀

3. Marion Driessen - October 12, 2012

I do hope they’re not afraid of heights 😉 Nice photos!

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

Or prone to nosebleeds! 😉

You can say that again.. .hehe.. I think they are good pictures

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

My collection of SILLY, FUNNY, and ABSURD photos is growing in stature . . . it’s getting BIGGER by the day! 😀

5. nuvofelt - October 12, 2012

What fun. Good for a giggle

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

Thanks, Chittle Chattle! I’m behind my time in checking out other submissions . . . we went to the beach for a picnic to enjoy the glorious weather. 😎

Great fun, Nancy! It’s interesting that we take kids to see the circus…at which clowns play a large role…and many kids are terrified of clowns. I wonder why we do that? 🙂

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

I don’t remember being scared of clowns at the circus . . . I loved watching them pile out of the tiny car in their BIG shoes and bright colored clothes. I also loved the bare-back riders, the acrobats, and the men on the flying trapeze. It was all good. 😀

viviankirkfield - October 24, 2012

You see, Nancy…you were brave and courageous even back then. 🙂

nrhatch - October 25, 2012

When I was with my grandmother . . . I felt invincible! 😀

7. kateshrewsday - October 12, 2012

I enjoyed this revelry, Nancy 🙂

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

Thank you kindly, Ms. Shrewsday! 😀

8. sufilight - October 12, 2012

My smile got big and bigger as I scrolled down to look at the photos. 🙂 🙂 🙂 Enjoy this! 🙂 🙂 🙂

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

My smile got big and bigger as I saw all the smiles you shared, Marie. Today = 2 scoops of AWESOME! 😀 😀

9. Carl D'Agostino - October 12, 2012

Now that’s a real Daddy Longlegs.

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

Have you seen the movie Chicken Little?

The aliens are like enormous Daddy Longlegs . . . only more adept with lasers and vaporizers. 😯

10. Tokeloshe - October 12, 2012

Well done!

I love clowns ♥

nrhatch - October 12, 2012

Me too!

Except for creepy doll clowns that won’t stop staring at me when I’m trying to go to sleep. 😯

11. Three Well Beings - October 12, 2012

Great photos! Out of all the possibilities, these photos have whimsy! 🙂

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

As soon as I saw the theme, I thought of the head. Which made me think of the clown. Which made me think of the circus coming to town. 😀

12. Perfecting Motherhood - October 13, 2012

Oh, that first giant head is scary! And I’d love to see someone try on stilts as long as on the last picture. Although it’d probably hurt a lot on the way down…

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

The clown in the 2nd shot walking down Pine Avenue was about 6 feet up in the air. The manequin in the last shot was about 12 feet up in the air . . . definitely a pedestal I would not wish to be toppled from. 😀

13. jannatwrites - October 13, 2012

The first photo, with the head, was creepy to me. I only remember going to the circus once when I was child, but the clowns didn’t scare me. I love watching people on stilts – maybe it’s because I know I couldn’t do it!

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

Stilts and Unicycles . . . especially the tall ones. It amazes me watching them roll back and forth to maintain balance, especially since they actually succeed at that endeavor! :mrgreen:

In context, the head didn’t creep me out. If I found him staring at me from the corner of my bedchamber in the middle of the night, I would FREAK OUT! 😯

14. under the skies of arkansas - October 13, 2012

the big top is rather big

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

The Ringling Circus Museum is full of delights for children of all ages. 😀

15. sweetdaysundertheoaks - October 13, 2012

Great selections for the photo challenge Nancy! They are BIG!

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

Thanks, Pix. Often I cruise photo files to find something to fit the weekly theme. Not this week. As soon as I saw “BIG” . . . I headed round to find Mr. Big Head.

He encouraged me to track down the Clown on Pine Avenue . . . which reminded me of the Circus Museum and its BIG exhibits. 😀

sweetdaysundertheoaks - October 13, 2012

Hey! Congrats are being Freshly Pressed!!!!!

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

Thanks, Pix! We got back from a picnic on the beach yesterday to that delightful “pat on the back” from WP.

I’m so glad that WP chose to feature the funny “How To Meditate” guide. :mrgreen:

16. Team Oyeniyi - October 13, 2012

Great photos, Nancy!

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

Thanks, Robyn. Loved the WP theme this week.

17. colonialist - October 13, 2012

Certainly a big response!

nrhatch - October 13, 2012

That’s probably why clowns congregate under the Big Top. 😉

18. bluebee - October 16, 2012

The arm stretching is especially true of fishermen 😉 Great photos for the challenge.

nrhatch - October 16, 2012

Yes! Thanks for the chuckle, BB. 😀
