The opposites of black and white, straight lines and curved ones, rough and smooth textures all work well here to bring both a sense of balance and an aesthetic appeal. Perhaps a visual representation of 'opposites attract'! :)

But one can also see how opposites repel or bounce off of each other. Watching world events, especially as they relate to politics, would tend to support the aversion of unlike philosophies and beliefs. Unfortunately, those differences are also translating into violence and power plays instead of conversation and negotiation....and are providing poor role models for our youth. Hopefully, the real 'power' of peaceful coexistence will move those polarities towards approachable attraction. 6th Ave S & 8th St, Naples, FL


  1. Nice example of opposites. What a wonderful world it would be if we could embrace our differences rather than fight against them.

  2. Love the contrasts in this shot! Black/white, curved/straight lines, etc. Nice work!

  3. Quite disheartening to see the violence on the part of autocratic governments. But it is not only about polarities - but about power. Nice shot
