Theme Day: Contrast

Building reflected in convex mirro, LivornoIf I have to explain what kind of contrast is this, then I missed completely this theme day...
The contrast I see is between the image in this road side mirror on the “Scali d'Azeglio” and our real world.

AWSOME photo!

You may not have had to explain the contrast to yourself because, obviously, you're a lot smarter than I am...and, sad to say, I needed the explanation. And it's a good one.

The photo's so good it gives me goosebumps! Thy middle name is "Artisto"!

Great and clever shot, VP!

Bob Crowe said...

An excellent illustration of the theme and a very creative concept.

Distortion from reality is indeed a form of contrast. A nice twisted take on the theme and a SUPER photo !

Oh, you are so philosophical today! Fantastic photo!

BeachILike said...

It is stunning! At first I thought it is your look through oval mirror on the road.

Funny thought of you for this, I like it.

Happy Theme Day!

What a great image. The concept is wonderful. Love the idea of contrast here.

Andreea said...

Beautiful photo, I think it's perfect for a contrast theme day.

tapirgal said...

Um. I'm also glad you explained the contrast. I would have been looking within the image. It is an excellent photo! Thanks for pointing out "bulbous bows." I had not heard of it before and it doesn't seem intuitive! The anchor chain, yes, there's a lot of tension on it. We can tell what the tide in the river is doing by which way the ship is facing in relation to the anchor chain.

Rob said...

Shot of the day for me too! Very well done indeed!

Mary Stebbins Taitt said...

Very good! It's almost surreal thanks the blue sky rather than a wall behind the mirror. Bellissima

Amazing photo! Very cleverly shot.

Malyss said...

no matter the theme or explanation: the picture is talking by itself, funny, a bit strange,unusual, and interesting!
Nice shot!

Ellie said...

You were able to fit all of that in the tiny mirror! Fascinating oval! Blue and yellow go well together!
