This week amid record snowfall, wind and excruciating cold I have been wistful for warmth. I’ve been dreaming of Florida beaches, remembering the smell of orange blossoms, longing for the feel of sun on my shoulders, and squinting up into reeling snowflakes to look for any sign of our own, long missing, sun overhead. So when I saw this week’s photo challenge, juxtaposition, I immediately connected the heat of a Florida orchard with the snow blowing past my window.
And came up with this:
It’s still snowing today. What was once beautiful is now viewed as something to get through. I know spring is not that far away…but from where I sit right now it feels like an interminable, never ending struggle.
I look forward to checking out other photographers’ version of juxtaposition. You could have all sorts of fun with this topic. It should be a great diversion from focusing on the weather. Give it a try! You have till next Friday to post your own juxtaposition composition. If you click on any of the links in this paragraph you’ll see a few of my favorites from this week.
I hope you go out and find something that shouts juxtaposition to you, I can’t wait to see it!
