How many times have you heard the phrase “opposites attract”? Having heard it, have you ever really thought about it? Whether yes or no, this week Tina challenges me to focus on it by sharing some examples of opposites through my images. I never know where my mind will go with these challenges.
My first photograph is that of a LAPC host Anne who is currently enjoying (I hope) a well-deserved photo getaway.
The next images were taken at the Aerospace Museum of California located in Sacramento. A great place to take your photography to the next level. For my second image titled Real Plane, I used Photoshop to merge for the HDR needed to see outside the windows.
These challenges let me see my images in a new light. The more I look at my forest image the more I like it. It may be due to our drought and heatwave. Rain is in the forecast this week.
One man’s trash is another man’s treasure
Some more opposites to ponder. There are examples of opposites wherever I look!
Did I get you thinking about all the opposites around you? Yet, so many had the same beginnings.
Thank you for visiting my take on opposites. Please leave me a comment!
This week Tina invited me to share images of places and things that have, “seen better days”. Evidence of our past is easily found here in Northern California. When I go out with my camera in hand, I am on the lookout for these abandoned items, settings, and buildings.
Some cars make it into an auto museum and some cars are just abandoned.
How many times have you misplaced an article of clothing? I’m surprised at where these lonely ones were found.
Gold and silver mining had much to do with the creation and downfall of many towns in Northern California. Bodie is one such example. In 1962 Bodie became Bodie State Historic Park, and an official gold rush ghost town. It is an example of “arrested decay”.
When my friend Anne and I went out with a fellow photographer Greg we often ended up exploring forgotten place such as Knight’s Landing.
Taking photographs of items with history behind them makes me think about the back story.
