If we look at the classic definitions of BIG, we see that it means pretty much what we always think of but there are other ways the word is used. Sure it's something that's large and in some cases simply larger than something it is compared against. I remember a campaign from a number of years ago when folks wore t-shirts with BIG on them and it meant "Born in Georgia". Now that goes way back to the days when Jimmy Carter was the Governor of the state.

Check out what Webster's has to say about big and then select your subjects.

Here are some classic BIG things.

Sorry I didn't take part in last week's CS but I was taking a break over here in Northumberland, my home county. I really should get back here more often.

:DNew or old, shiny or corroded, mint condition or ragged, normal size or big, it’s still worth only one cent.:D

Interesting photo, Bob. Is that a fake "big" penny, or it it just closer?

Thanks, guys. That's the result of two shots -- one at 70mm and another at 200mm. I then selectively composited the two. [At one time, I had a collection of 2- and 3-cent coins -- those might be worth a little more than these pennies.]

We've had the normal size dahlias for many years, but this year my daughter-in-law gave me some that had been advertised as "dinner-plate" dahlias. Well, the plants are 6 ft. tall and had to be staked up. However, the flowers are only 5-6 in. in diameter. [I'm not complaining -- I'd need steel cages to support anything bigger.:eek:]
