Weekly Photo Challenge: CONTRAST

This week’s challenge is exciting! At first I fixated on Light and Shadow, pairs I frequently focus on. But then other opposing pairs began parading in a stately manner before me: Day and Night, Mother and Child, Inside and Outside, Up and Down — and I had great fun going through my photo archives, looking with a fresh eye at possible contrasts that don’t occur so readily to me. I’m ready for a one-a-day, like a daily vitamin pill of freshness! Nonetheless I’m starting out with a conventional enough photo of color contrast — although the colors are perhaps not so conventional —

A wall in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

    Contriving contrasts sound like lots of fun – solid and liquid (one of my favourits), natural and artificial … you’ve got me going. I like the picture and I am curious what you will come up with. Have a good Sunday!

  2. You are off to a great start on this photo challenge. I’m eagerly anticipating what you will share next.

  3. From the perspective of now being in San Miguel and studying those beautifully colored walls, this is a wonderful piece of San Miguel, capturing a small bit of its essence.

    Very cool picture!
    Ok, I am gonna try another contrast that your picture evokes : Anger (red) Vs Passivity (yellow)!

      Interesting — the colors acting like Rorschach tests —
      Red as anger, okay, I’m with you. Yellow as passivity? Hmmmmmmm. For passivity, I think more of pale colors, light pink, light blue.

    The colors are fantastic. Good for the people of San Miguel de Allende for daring to live so boldly!

      Another locale where the sun blazes most of the time. The house paints they use are all made with various earth pigments, and the colors are AMAZING. I miss that a lot in the mostly pastel New England scene.

I love comments! Thanks for coming by and visiting ---
