Lens-Artists Challenge – Opposites

Tina leads this week with a fun and interesting challenge and I agree and love her first quote :

“Opposites are not contradictory but complementary.” Niels Bohr

So with that in mind, I went on a search for opposites yes, but on the same thing or place. The amount of ideas that came to mind… harder was finding what I wanted.

The view from our hotel in Tokyo, day and night

Up and down the stairs at the Panorâmico de Monsanto, Lisbon

A poppy, closed and open

Movement and stillness of a seagul

Chives, new and old

Peacock, front and back

My deepest thank you to all the replies and comments on last week’s challenge, I appreciate every single one of them. I was happy to see all the different urban environments shown, so many new places I’d love to visit one day.

This week we’re thinking of opposites; how they are everywhere and how they’re needed if we’re to have balance. I’ve also found Tina’s challenge incredibly fun. So, if you want to join us, please visit her inspiring post, link to it and tag Lens-Artists so we can find it. I’m sure there’s going to be lots of opposites I haven’t even thought of so that will be most interesting!

Until next week, when Donna of Wind Kisses will be our Guest Host, please take care.

  1. Top, Sofia. Amazing, you even have the backside of a peacock while showing his wonderful plumage in your archive. I’d have deleted such a photo in case one would have found the way on my storage. Love it!

  2. what a clever twist on the topic Sofia, I loved your post! The Tokyo images really illustrate how the night shows only the beauty of the skyline, and I’d never seen a closed poppy so that was really fun for me. Love how you showed the peacock! Terrific response.

  3. Each set of opposites is striking. I love the Tokyo day and night comparison a lot, especially how Tokyo Tower, the buildings, and the street glow. The chive and poppy comparisons are also hauntingly beautiful!
