Travel Theme: Contrast
Ailsa got my brain a-working on this one. I had several ideas and everywhere I looked I though about contrasts or almost-contrasts. I’m not real good at black and white thinking – I am always muddling around in shades of grey. But you have to admit that there is contrast in this photo of early morning light.
On the other hand, we can contrast the trees against the sky outside my Florida window with the scene outside my Michigan window. Can you guess which is which?
These two pictures may reflect a contrast in weather. Two weeks ago when it was in the high 60’s I complained (just a little) about how cold it was. Today it was in the low 60’s and I was bubbling excitement about how warm it had gotten (it was in the 20’s two days ago). Maybe that isn’t a contrast in weather, but a contrast in my perspective or maybe my attitude. Or is it a contrast in latitude? That cold weather gave me an attitude adjustment – or maybe just an attitude that adjusted with the warmer weather. Latitude also adjusts my attitude.
Another contrast is in my daffodils. Just a few days ago the daffodils in my front bed looked like this –
They popped out and then survived gale-force winds, freezing cold, and snow. No wonder people in the northern climes sing their praises.
There are lots of beds of daffodils planted in our parks so I think I’ll see what my lens can capture tomorrow – unless it snows again. Although snow on daffodils is a nice contrast, too.
Ailsa has some nice contrast of tulips, so check her out. You can also join in the fun there.
