Weekly Photography Challenge: Juxtaposition

flowers-and-mirror

Juxtaposition: The curved line of a modern mirror and the vintage look of baby’s breath; the hard surface of the mirror and the soft touch of the blossoms; the shine of glass and the matte white of flowers… These contrasts play among muted tones.

This is my entry for this week’s photography challenge: http://dailypost.wordpress.com/2014/01/24/photo-challenge-juxtaposition/#more-67462

The Empty Chair

A mirror broke today.

It was a large, heavy mirror. One that I had painted and thought looked perfect on the table in my dining room. Even though I had secured it to the wall, it came crashing down.

It scratched my good table, chipped my new floor, and sent shards of glass flying across two rooms. I was disappointed and discouraged.

But no one was hurt.

Mostly, I feel a tremendous sense of gratitude for the empty chair.
