Farm Security Administration photographer Dorothea Lange captured this juxtaposition of subjects in this 1937 image titled "Toward Los Angeles CA.".
A quilt hangs above a group of ladies visiting at the Vinland Fair. My pairing of the quilt with the "Best of.." tag and the ladies combines two elements that in my mind can lead a viewer to a third idea - that these women in conversation are the best part of what I show.
Attempting a rather subtle joke, I framed on this bottled water vehicle during a rain and then waited until for an umbrella toting person walked into the frame. Be careful that your photographs communicate effectively and are not so subtle that a viewer cannot grasp the concept or understand your image.
Juxtaposing a row of riding mowers next to a women pulling a non-powered mower, created a humorous image. Photographed separately, the two subjects would have been boring.
Westar energy plant smokestacks billow behind a windmill in North Lawrence against a Kansas sunset. This juxtaposition compares and contrasts two sources of creating energy.
A restoration painter is photographed below this painting on a ceiling in the Topeka Statehouse. The similarity in body language created a nice juxtaposition of elements and a nicely balanced photograph.
I spotted this painting at an arts and crafts show and was determined to use it within a photograph. While framed on the painting one couple passed with a few remarkable similarities. Juxtaposing the pairs together created a subtle humor to the scene.
Contrasting old tractors with a passing airplane in the background added just a little twist to this scene at a steam engine show in Jefferson County. I was aware of the planes taking off in the background so I framed on the foreground scene and waited for the fly through.
