I’ve recently started following an Internet Nobody. I have. I really have.
Each week, they supply a Cosmic Photo Challenge. This weekend, the theme was ‘On a Small Scale’. So I thought to myself Hmmm… what’s small? I knew I’d be using my mobilius phonius to take the photo, as I can get quite close to small things with it (like yesterday’s tortoise – that fits in the palm of one’s hand, wouldn’t you know?).
I thought of a postage stamp.
I reached for my stamp collection, and selected this one out of the five.
It was only as I was taking the photo that I realised the stamp was for the value of 1p. 1p! I’d misread it as ‘1st’ for some reason, an easy mistake I’m sure.
However a small value on a small postage stamp? Very small-scale in my book! The link above will allow you to see other small things (there are some creepy-crawlies though, so be warned!)
