Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge – Juxtaposition

Daily Post - Juxtaposition

I liked the juxtaposition of the old fishing boats, some where people of Hong Kong still live, and the monolithic skyscrapers, where thousands live. A very ancient and modern place of residence.











About Forestwoodfolk

Scandinavian culture, literature and traditions are close to my heart, even though I am Australian. I have Scandinavian, Frisian and Prussian/Silesian ancestry and for that reason, I feel a connection with that part of the world. I am an avid Nordic Crime fiction reader, and enjoy photography, writing and a variety of cooking and crafts, and traditional decorative art forms. Politically aware and egalitarian by nature, I have a strong environmental bent.

    What an interesting photo – and I like your description (well said) – and did you also notice that to the left of the photo there is the larger boat – and then two unique buildings? well not totally unique, but different format he others – and so there is a nice interest to the left – which brings you into the rest – but wow, this really does juxtapose two different worlds! 🙂


    • Yes that was lucky. I only had seconds to snap the photo. It is always great to tell a little story with the photo -if you can.

      Thanks for taking the time to reply – and I also agree that it helps to tell a little story – and sometimes I really love hearing how the photographer “got” the shot – like on one blog the lady shared that she had to crawl to snap the coos-up of an ostrich and her rich narrative changed the entire feel. And with that said, I must also admit that sometimes the picture can (and should) maybe speak for itself – and by omitting all descriptions, we let the view feel something untainted or undirected – they can just soak it up for what they feel and see…



    • Oh absolutely. You are right. That is why I like Wordless Wednesday

  7. This is an amazing piece of art and it does have a feeling of ancient and modern combination As a Mixed Media artist I also love contrasts in my work…
