Photo Friday

This is now my 4th photo Friday and I have had so much fun so far.


I always think it's amazing just how small we are in the grand scheme of things and it was only till a while ago that I realized just how small we are.


This is a picture of our planet, isn't it amazing to think that even though we are big compared to a insect or bug we are just little dots compared to the planet we live on. who would think there are billions of people on this our planet you can't even see us in the picture we are so small.




As you can see from this picture our planet again is but a small spec compared to the size of most of the other planets and next to the sun we are so small it's the same comparison as when we stand next to a small insect like a ant or a flea. we are really small.




As for our sun if you think it is big then take a look at this photo of our galaxy. if you look close you can see our sun is highlighted by a yellow target and its path is also displayed.
Again as you can see we are really small in the grand scheme of things. Imagine how powerful of a telescope would you need to see us from this far away. we really are so small and our planet is so very fragile. but however it was mankind working together that made this picture possible so I guess that yes as individuals we are so small but as a race we are capable of anything. no matter how large the challenge is.


I hope you all enjoyed my photo Friday for this week.

I am so glad you are participating Wayne!!

It is amazing to think we are so small in relation to the world but we can mean the world to certain people.

Great PSF!

and think, just how small we are....

Honey Mommy said...

I love that first image. The world seems so big, but compared to the universe it seems so small.

Emily said...

It's funny how we are so small but so many people seem to think the world revolves around them! lol

Jennifer said...

This was very interesting. I loved seeing all the comparisons. It's amazing how complex the universe is that our Lord created so long ago.

Thanks for commenting on my posts :-) It really does put things into perspective to think of how small we all really are in comparison to the world....great post.

you and my son would get along grand - he LOVES plants and space . . . and I swear if I have to read one more book on Saturn - I will turn blue!

It's so good to keep that perspective. Especially when times are tough (individually). Thank you for reminding us of that...helps me to think outside of my world! Great PSF..

Great post!
We are all so tiny in this big vast Universe... are problems must be tinier, aren't they?

Steph said...

That was a good one! Awesome to see the differences.

Very interesting post. We are all so very small but when we come together we make big things happen.

It is so true. Seeing how small we are in the grand scheme of things really puts things into perspective.

Wayne! That is CRAZY! It really puts some things in perspective doesn't it? The first picture is really cool.

For some reason, the solar system has been all the rage here last week as well.
Maybe it's due to NASA 50th anniv.?

I find it all a bit overwhelming to think of ourselves in relation to the great big universe.

Susie said...

Now that was a learning experience! We are sooo tiny. It's hard for me to wrap my head around the vastness of a galaxy--better to leave it to the scientists!
Great PSF!

Mama Zen said...

Wow! It is amazing, isn't it?

Krystyn said...

It is amazing. And, all it makes me want to say is how wonderful and awesome God is.

Holly at Tropic of Mom said...

It might sound kind of crazy, but there's something comforting about feeling so small!

newlyweds said...

It really puts things into perspective of how some small things in life really are when you look at the big picture!

Cookie said...

How did you take that picture?!

Supercool Hotmama said...

It is amazing when we realize where we fit in the eternal scheme of things!
