Scale – Weekly Photo Challenge –


Minnesota State Fair horses 2017

Draft Horse Competition Minnesota State Fair 2017 CKatt

The magnificent Percheron Horses were part of the Coach and Six competition at the Minnesota State Fair 2017, which takes place in the city of St Paul. For today’s challenge of scale, this photo shows the scale of the Percherons’ size not only to the crowd, but also to the mounted police horse and rider to the left. These beautiful giant horses make people stop in awe.

On the opposite side of “scale” are these small city dwellers who appear with the seasons.  The squirrels who nest in the big trees, flowers, bees and butterflies remind me of their life cycle that however brief, is a part of a whole that sustains our lives.

Have a pleasant day.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen.
