While standing in my kitchen, I first noticed the tiny new growth on this money tree. With the light above the plant and the darkness of the living room as a backdrop, it made for some beautiful contrast. I grabbed my camera and captured a few shots while supper cooked.
I could not resist photographing this little composition of contrasts.
The vibrant scarlet against the almost monochromatic background; the fuzzy-soft flower on the rock-hard bridge; living against un-living… This is the was I found it.
These two spring-like ferns popping up in a bed of fall leaves is a study in contrasts:
- Green and red
- Soft and brittle
- Reaching up and falling down
- New and old
- Life and death
My daughter is forever leaving articles of clothing around the house. Even outside.
I was sitting in the screen porch and looked across at her pretty pink skirt forgotten on the patio chair.
It is a contrast in colours and tones, the bright pink against the dark brown; a contrast in materials, the lace against the heavy plastic weave; in shape and form, the softly ruffled fabric against the hard lines of the chair.
As a mom, I also see the contrast in behaviours: Disarray against order.
