Small Scale Stories

A story’s weight lies in its message, not in how much long or short it is.

Many can tell a life’s tale in few sentences while those who can’t spend a lifetime to create one. But I believe this doesn’t apply to photography because in one single frame, one can tell a story, without saying a lot.

You can show either one character or an entire cast in your pictorial-story, as I refer to call it. No need of any dialogue for them too.

The only question is: how do you place them up in one frame to tell a story?

So, I tried to picture a story once (or couple of times if I tell you precisely). Using Uzair’s toy cars collection, I placed them inside a frame to see what kind of stories they can tell (or show in this case).

Here are my attempts, with possible story titles:

The Robbery

Yes, you are right! Judging by their titles, you can easily placed them in the crime genre. But consider them as my playful attempt on a small scale.

So, did you enjoyed “reading” these stories?

      Oh, this just made my day!
      Thank you very much for liking it. Although, I do admit that I didn’t asked for Uzair’s permission to play with his toys. I used them up when he was sleeping ๐Ÿ˜
