Weekly Photo Challenge: Opposites

There’s a jazzy Jim Henson Sesame Street song about this…

That’s the first thing that popped into my head. ‘Near’ and ‘far’ are opposite concepts.  Concrete things are rarely exact opposites.  More often, their differences are about contrast and juxtaposition.  Here are some examples:

sculpture and poet 

MKE flower industry

growth piercing


green stream

This complex world is full of interesting differences. My hope is that these contrasts become areas for exploration and awe, not areas for fear and hatred.  You know what I mean? 

Peace, friends. 🙂

  1. Yup, I know what you mean!
    Love your photos and interpretation of the challenge. Fun song! Never heard it.
    Peace back

    • I have a lot of Public Television songs in my memory. Also camp songs. They tend to surface at odd times these days.
      I’m glad to know another soul who “gets me”. 🙂

  2. Thanks again, Scilla. Your posts help me appreciate nature and connect back to myself and my place in it. And that Muppet song! – Oh, for a red wild wig and zany green pyjamas!
    Saturday’s morning paper has just thudded on my driveway … Australians will vote in their federal election today … Will we get more of the same ? … or opposites? What a gift it is to start the day, early and peacefully … with a little ‘hip’ beat in the background.
