Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

This week’s Photo Challenge asks us to illustrate the concept of juxtaposition: a fancy term for incongruous elements of strong visual weight that draw your attention at the same time.

Uh….. Say what ❓ ❓

Maybe I should just show you some examples! 😉

1. A seagrape branch where seapgrape shouldn’t be, on a day just shy of magical.

2. The lushness in the top half of the next photo is in stark contrast to the railroad vine in the sand, below.Railroad Vine, Jaycee Beach

3. The next shot is a twofer! 😉  Same juxtaposition as above, but with added contrast of sun vs. shade competing for the viewer’s focus. :

4. The last juxtaposition is a clash of opposing emotions:  Melpomene and Thalia at the Seaside Grille! 🙂

This was SUCH a creative challenge, yeah?  I hadn’t participated in awhile but the topic drew me back in!

  7. You do have an eye for details don’t you? I need to acknowledge you for bringing this aspect up front in your juxtaposed photos. Would you be seeking some award?
