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
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.
Sometimes, when I am lacking inspiration, I head to the dollar store.
This was one of those times. This photo, called “I Dream in Colour”, is an image of the inside of a $1 jar.
There is beauty even in the most unexpected places.
