This week’s photo challenge made me put my thinking cap on to come up with a worthwhile post:
This week, make two opposing elements come together (or clash in dissonance) in one photo. In your photo this week, show how opposites can tell a story about people, places, or objects. The tension can reside in what you choose to show — old vs. new, big vs. small, dark vs. light — or in how you frame and design your shot. I look forward to seeing your entries!
When you think about it, there are many opposites in life. What was I to show to explain that? Hmmmmm…..
I came up with this one photo of an event that took place in the Brisbane CBD recently — the Festival of Chariots, organised by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). The celebration centred on a massive hand-drawn chariot that wound its way through inner-city streets to come to rest at King George Square. The photo highlights the multicultural nature of Brisbane. Here was a chariot with religious connections and directly behind it, an old church that has been surrounded by massive skyscrapers. So the opposites were the religious items, as well as the new and old buildings.
