Today I’m participating in the A Word A Week Challenge. This week’s theme is “contrast”. I encourage you to click on each photo to see a larger view. If you like what you see, please subscribe to this blog to receive updates of the new photos I post, usually 3 to 5 times a week.
There are many ways to feature contrast in photographs, so here are a few of my personal interpretations for this photo theme. There can be contrast between light and dark, as in this backlight setting on Coronado beach in front of the Pacific ocean.
Or it could be contrast between light and dark at night, between the bright full moon in the background and the dark trees in the foreground.
It could be the exact opposite with the trees in the foreground in bright light, and the clouds in the background in the dark.
It could be both a contrast in size, small versus large, and in color, white and versus pink, as in this photo of a small white poppy right next to a large pink poppy.
Finally, it could a contrast between what you see at first glance, and what you really see if you look more closely, as in this map of the USA in the water puddle with the colors of the American flag, still one of my favorite shots so far.
