Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Contrast between my young niece's animated style and old Ben's subdued demeanor. I always knew my niece was an angel, but I just noticed her wings.

Contrast between the dullness of the brush and this colorful Chincoteague pony.

The brightness of these leaves against the incredible blueness of the sky presents an amazing contrast.

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

    The third photo is stunning. Beautiful contrast and rich colors.

      Thanks, Kris. That was taken in October 2010 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We were walking to Mount Auburn Cemetery, and I had never before seen such a blue sky and colorful leaves as that fall day.

    Great pictures, Susan. Ben really looks like he’s taking your niece’s comments to heart.

    I love your photos! Being a native Philadelphian, I especially love the one of your niece with Ben Franklin! It is so nice she can now prove her angel-ness. I also love the leaves against that sky, and the subtle contrast of the ponys. It must be exciting to be there, my brother and his family went one year, I hear it is visually stunning, but physically uncomfortable with the biting flies the size of crows and plentiful!

    • Coming East says:

      Thanks, Carol. Don’t get me started on those biting flies! I didn’t realize you were originally from Philly. We lived in West Chester for two years, and our youngest son was born in Bryn Mawr. Maybe we wrote about this to each other before. I can’t remember anything!

  7. I’d love to have a conversation with old Ben. 🙂

    Wonderful contrast Susan. the ponies are amazing.

      Have you ever been to Chincoteague? I always wanted to go to Pony Penning, and now we only live two hours from there. I hear it is a madhouse during Pony Penning time, though, so just living near it is good enough for me.

      • Huffygirl says:

        No, I don’t even know where or what that is. Sounds like the same problem we have here with Holland and Tulip Time. The tulips are beautiful, but the little town is so overrun with tourists that most natives stay away and come see the tulips the week after.

      • Coming East says:

        I know what you mean, HG. I get my beach time in at the resort area at the Oceanfront before the tourists come. I rarely go down there in the summer. I’d much rather go to the town beaches that the tourists don’t know about.

Let me hear your thoughts. They are important to me.
