There is some sort of delight in finding something that doesn't quite fit size wise. I'm a big fan of tiny apples, tastes like a regular apple but made for elfin hands.
Perhaps this is why Terrariums are so very popular. Who doesn't want a miniature ecosystem all to themselves. Usually quite simple, they are made with moss or air plants, as these are relatively hardy, and constructed in small glass containers. Dollhouses for the nature lover.
I wonder what makes the unexpected size so appealing, perhaps a tiny shred of a moment where we can imagine ourselves as giants....
Or in the case of this photograph by Leah Benetti, in miniature.
