WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: JUXTAPOSITION

The first challenge was understanding the actual meaning of juxtaposition.

“To place close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast”

That seems simple enough, but surprisingly found it difficult to make sure the images fit the challenge. Some may be borderline, but maybe the explanation will get them over the line?

Mona Lisa smiled for Leonardo DaVinci, now she smiles for thousands of cameras every day. Her anonymity is juxtaposed against how famous she is.

 

 

 

Serenity vs Chaos

Sun worshipping

Some worship God and some worship the sun. On the Greek island of Agistri you can almost do both at the same time. 

 

Zebra Nuggets?

Zebra Nuggets?

 

KFC is known for its savouring of chicken, not its saving of zebras at Singapore’s Zoo. Maybe this is the answer to what’s in a nugget?

 

 

 

Getting the position just right!

Getting the position just right!

This isn’t juxtaposti0on but more like “adjusting position” of her swimming togs! All very tongue in cheek – or is it bum in cheek?
