Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Light and dark, tall and short, happy and sad — this week, share a shot that captures a contrast.

The delicate airiness of the heuchera bloom contrasted by the sturdy squatness of the front porch pillar:

    Great photo Barb- delicate and wispy against strong and stable.
    Such a pretty addition to your garden


    • Thanks, Di. The heuchera is in the urn plantings on the front porch. I was just trying to get the stem and voila, this shot. I was thrilled when I saw the theme for this week’s challenge because I knew just which picture to choose. Glad you liked!

    Awesome click….!


    • Thanks, Alison. I don’t what is happening to my bloglovin feed lately, but I’ve missed several of your recent posts. Just saw that you’ve been posting on Italy again so need to figure out why I’m not getting notified. Have a great weekend!

    Love the contrast. Will the plant wrap itself around the pillar?

    Simply stunning! while observing this so simple but magical photo, at times that porch pillar becomes an open misty space, in a dark wet forest, with a waterfall making a perfect blured background for that sutil heuchera bloom to contrast with. I really like this photo , congrats!

    Love this. Concrete vs nature. Darkness vs light. Hard vs soft. Colour vs no colour. Well done, perfect photo for this week’s theme 🙂
