On Contrasts



Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts Share a shot that captures a contrast.

I love this old brick building downtown. The contrast between the solid rough brick and the gently creeping ivy always makes me pause. Sometimes a copyright feels like too much of a distraction from the image, ever feel that way? This time I opted against it, but the pic is still my own.

    I love that interpretation! Red and green are complementary, so this works well with those shades. 🙂

      Thanks PunkRockGirl, I know you have a PhD in the art of color combining! 😉

    This is the perfect picture for us to march into the July Fourth holiday week, sis. Red, White, Blue and green ivy! That’s a beautiful building. I want to steal this photo from you. But I won’t. 🙂

      That is so funny you said that because my last line read, “I’m looking at you Beels!” But I deleted it before publishing. Didn’t want any newbies thinking I was seriously accusing you of stealing. LOL! Xoxo

        That was the perfect last considering our Polish-Mex ESP, Sandra. Wow. We are scary. Too funny.

        We’re gonna start writing each others posts next. It’s the Frank and Dolores connection, for sure hermano!

        I’m inside your head, but my hair is too short for bangs. It’s frustrating me. Oh, sis!

        It’s ok. I have a fake stache I can dig up. 70’s style Beels. 😉

    You should see Wrigley Field in June. Seriously. The brick and ivy are amazing.

      I would love to see Wrigley Field in June, Deborah. No doubt some day that will happen! xoxo

    Christmas colors! Yes, I agree that copyrights can jack up the shot. No one will steal. BTW, my hub has an aversion to red brick, as it reminds him of old Baptist churches LOL.

      I feel the same about copyrights sometimes too Kerbey. Poor hub, Baptist church must have really left an impression if the sight of brick alone is too much for him. I’ll bet the backstory is a good one.

    I use a watermark on everything. They can be removed easily if you know how but they still get the mark.

      I hear you John, but are there ever certain shots you take that make it hard to affix a mark without taking something away from the frame?

        Now that’s a ‘purist’ talking there! But you make a good point, especially if the photo is some seriously professional material.


      • July 2, 2014 at 4:17 pm

        Now that’s the first time I’ve ever been accused of being a purist. And I’m taking it as a compliment. Thank you John! 😉

    love it and the concept of contrast!!

      Thank you very much Ms. CybeleMoon!

    I love old brickwork. I wish it could speak of everything seen and heard by the rustic bricks.
