During a fall visit to Wiesbaden, Germany, I strolled the streets of Altstadt — the Old Town — and came upon a miniature, three-dimensional map of the city center. I peered down at the sculpture, following tiny avenues, turning tiny corners, and studying the details of facades and roofs.

I located where I was staying — not far from Wiesbaden’s iconic Marktkirche, or Market Church — and traced various routes through the town, engrossed and giddy. I’ve always loved tiny versions of things: toys and collectibles, furry animals, even houses.

In this week’s challenge, show us tiny. Capture something at a smaller scale. Create your own miniature scene. Or experiment with the tilt-shift technique — Instagram and other apps have this built-in tool.

You can also interpret the theme in other ways by capturing your favorite tiny things — from your baby’s hands to belongings that are special to you — or documenting a small, quiet moment in your day. Have fun!

    1. Yes, I enjoyed my stay! It was a short weekend visit (we went to a wedding at Kloster Eberbach), but my husband and I walked a bit on Sunday, through the park and to Nerobergbahn, where we took the funicular to the top and explored. Really lovely city 🙂
