Juxtaposition

bokeh, flowers, nifty fifty, 50mm, canon, dslr


Yesterday, we took a walk around the surrounding neighborhood.  The last time we did this 3-mile loop, I lamented not bringing my camera so I made sure to grab my DSLR before we left the house.  I don't have many words today so I will tell you that I really like symmetry.  I also like gardens and landscaping because I think of how we've taken the materials nature has given us to build inorganic formations.  It reminds me of that time a friend took me to James Turrell's Skyspace piece to watch the sunrise and I thought it was a brilliant juxtaposition of the inorganic and natural world (more on Turrell's work here).  Then my other friends teased me for repeatedly saying "juxtaposition."  But, shh, it's still one of my favorite words.

  7. Mi piace da morire il look che proponi nella decima foto, la t-shirt bianca con scritta e la gonnellina scura con stampa (e accessori, ovviamente) ** semplice e delizioso!
    E la foto sotto fa subito pranzo estivo, che meravigliaaaa!
