January Photo Contest: Big and Little

On behalf of @c0urt ...

The theme for the month of January will be: "Big and Little"

For example ... an adult and a kid.


The rules are simple:
- You must be the photographer
- One entry per month
- Try making it an image from the last year.

Voting:
- Vote for your top 3
- No voting for yourself

The winner picks the theme for March.

In light of the rules clarification, I am changing my submission. (I cannot figure out how to delete the mother-daughter photo.) Sparwood, B.C. during a '09 tour in B.C., AB and Montana. 5 feet tall meets the world's largest truck

Our bike club rides out of an industrial transpark airport and one of the worlds largest (I think the largest) cargo planes lands there on occasion. A Russian Antonov An-124. Look at the number of wheels - amazing this thing can get in the air !

Does it have to be an adult and a kid or is that just an example?

I was wondering the same thing. I went with the literal reading, but if that was wrong I might like to change my submission.

I am thinking just big and little works, it came to me on a whim, it was a lot cleaner than the girl i was talking to at the moment came up with, and I am sure some of us can something epic if we play it random

Liberal interpretation, with the large and small pools of a birdbath. Spotted on a morning dog walk while visiting the in-laws last week, the water in a birdbath took on a cool crystalline structure when the temp dipped below freezing overnight.

Previously posted, but seems the best fit from my images - big landscape, tiny human presence
