Weekly Photography Challenge: Juxtaposed

morgen in bedThis weeks photography challenge is “Juxtaposition” –   “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast”, which is a fun topic, open to interpretation. I guess that’s why it’s such a favourite and much used word in “artist’s statements”…sounds good, could mean anything…juxtaposed

Such as, a piece of lace, and an on-going textile project juxtaposed  over the glass panel of a door, and backlit by the setting sun.

Less cheery, this is a view of High Street Ararat (not her best angle, admittedly), with the juxtaposition of the fire cloud from a very large bushfire in the Grampians. I took it with my phone on my way to work 17/01/2014. Later that day, with wind changes, burnt leaves and bark, and ash, from the fire fell around our house, fortunately all cold. A lot of houses were burnt in the Wartook Valley, but Hall’s Gap, evacuated in the afternoon, was lucky, yet again, and was open for business by the following week end.
