Opposites

Post Sat Aug 22, 2009 9:38 pm


It is an honor to host the next photo competition! The theme this week will be opposites. Any photo containing opposite elements will work, and to me, some possible opposite examples are young/ old, life/ death, fire/ water, cat/ dog (to name just a few)...let your imagination run wild. Do me a favor, though. Please title your opposites, so I know what to look for. :mrgreen: I have some examples from my own gallery, but I am having some horrible computer issues right now, so I can't post any actual examples. Some ideas might include a bonfire on a beach (fire/ water), a grandmother and her grandchild (young/ old), a child jumping in a pile a leaves (life/ death). I hope you get my drift. Purely black and white images, while technically opposite, must still contain some opposite theme.

Thank you and have a great time this week! I can't wait to see your photos!

Submissions will be closed on Saturday the 29th of August 2009 at 21:38:23 UTC.
