Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

An interesting challenge this week – juxtaposition, with this post being brought to you by the colour yellow. Read on to find out why.

Dictionary.com tells us:
jux·ta·po·si·tion [juhk-stuh-puh-zish-uhn] – noun
1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.
2. the state of being close together or side by side.
Origin:1655–65; < Latin juxtā side by side + < French position.

Looking around the kitchen table I’m thinking there should be a few items I can gather that would look great juxtaposed and sure enough, I’ve a mostly full bottle of beer (thanks Monteith’s) along with a rather refreshing looking glass of carbonated water (bubbles by Sodastream).

Putting them together (and playing with my new 35mm lens) produced the shots below – bonus being Cath’s birthday flowers to enhance the backdrop.

Purely co-incidental that we’re mostly yellow on this shoot, that’s just how it turned out 🙂

Right, that’s enough typing, the beer is getting warm…
