Weekly Photo Challenge: A Diversity of Contrasts

As my daughter and I headed out to run some errands, I told her about this week’s photo challenge and said, “So if you see anything that says, ‘Contrast’, to you, let me know.”  Although I wasn’t able to snap a picture, as soon as I said it, we passed by a situation that spoke volumes.  Have you ever gone through a road construction site and slowed down as instructed by the sign held by one of the road crew, only to have a police officer or another road crew member waving you forward as if to say, “Move faster!”?

While walking toward Urban Outfitters on Burlington, Vermont’s Church Street, we passed by a couple of street musicians.  I couldn’t help but notice a diversity of contrasts.  How many do you notice?

I know some individuals and groups still struggle with racial issues and such, but I love that the U.S. is a ‘giant melting pot’.  And I love that the couple was singing This Land Is Your Land.

Jesus said unto him, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.  This is the first and great commandment.  And the second is like unto it.  Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.  On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”  —Matthew 22:37-40

  1. very cool – and I sometimes tell the family what I am on the hunt for -with a photo theme too – and Rene – you are so right – I like our melting pot too – and in this shot I notice a few nice contrasts- – and by the way – I really like how your watermark does NOT contrast – it is so subtle that I missed it at first….:) ❤

    • Aww, thank you! I do try to keep my watermark from distracting from the image overall. I did make it bigger in this shot, though, so as to discourage it from being used without my permission, especially since it contains people. Isn’t it great when you and your loved ones can share in a project together?
