Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

Michelle from “Daily Post” writes: “A juxtaposition is ‘the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast’ (unexpected pairings).โ€ Photos below are shot by “frizztext” (= some by my wife B., some by myself), always featuring a paradox side by side – what do you think, fits the term JUXTAPOSITION perfectly? Do you have a favorite among the 14 examples?

  35. Not a fair question, picking a favorite when they are all so good and full of such wonderful juxtaposition but, if I close my eyes and think back I see Too Much White, the pigeon and the kicker, and the Jesus Missile for peace and destruction!

    • hi Patti,

      I like very much, that many of your photos and comments
      have a political dimension:
      “…sitting on the church steps, all doors closed….”
      thank you for political statements in my blog too,
      handling fashion hybris and animal rights,
      racism, religion and wars:
      “…if I close my eyes and think back I see
      Too Much White,
      the pigeon and the kicker, and the
      Jesus Missile for peace and destruction!”
