Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition


If you would like to see what others have come up with for this challenge then go to the Daily Post @ WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge 

Juxtaposition happens when there is two or more elements in a scene that either contrast each other, or one element contributes towards another to create an overall theme. To create a point of juxtaposition, the photo must have at least two elements in the photo that contains strong visual weight, so that the viewer looks at both at the same time and comes to their own conclusion about their purpose in the photo.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. I’m not even sure whether you can go all the way up, but I did see people on the lower balcony, which was high enough! I have been waiting for a chance to post this photo – just love the image of the 12th century tower and the 21st century aeroplane. Though I hate to think what effect pollution is having on these buildings.

  1. Great shot Jude! This building is old, and so high!!! I feel woozy just looking at it!
    I’ve yet to do mine…Monday ‘ain’t over yet 😉
