A Matter of Proportion by mcsiegle

A Matter of Proportion

Continuing with the tomato and my get pushed challenge of contrasts, given me by Val @valpetersen. I thought the contrast of perceived size from the perspectives of these two willing models might be useful. The Triceratops Twin Brother is, as you may guess, smaller than Porc Cousteau (who is still wearing his championship belt from the Battle of the Banks that he and Later Gator won way back in 2011). They've been in the garage for a good while, but I brought him out to referee our Thursday Pigmania games (though, really, Katy @grammyn and Kathy @randystreat and I have not had much in the way of disputed pig rolls.) That is the same tomato in both the pictures.
@valpetersen Last one.

@grammyn @randystreat Porc Cousteau has been wanting to get involved in a photo shoot. So I indulged him here. He seemed pleased, even though he puts on a very blasé expression. What I think he'd especially like is to meet your big blue pig, Katy.

LOL! This is a perfect way to show contrasts!

We will have to see if we can’t make that meeting happen, Mary!

This really does show how important perspective and proportion are! This is an excellent example!
We are paired for get pushed this week.
I was wondering if you would like to try a high key animal photo this week. That way you could tag it for both the get pushed challenge and the new animal photography challenge.
Here's the link to the animal one:

I just want to know. Is Porc Cousteau one of your Pigmania cheerleaders? Perhaps you answered that in the above comment.

That is a great demo of perceived size.

@shutterbug49 Thanks. I had fun setting up the contrast. Just think if I had a bug’s eye view of the little tomato!

@randystreat Yes and no. I originally recruited him as referee. (He thinks of it as a Celebrity Referee gig) But it turns out we have very little need for a ref. I don’t think we’ve had any seriously disputed pig rolls. So he naturally slid into the role of cheerleader for our team. It’s a good thing, too! Now that your Pig 1 and Pig 2 have Princess to cheer for them and Katy’s Grunt and Suie have Big Blue, Mochyn and Maiale are happy to have Porc firmly on their side.

@grammyn Thank you for making that meeting happen!

@mcsiegle it was totally my pleasure!
