Share Your View: Visual Contrast

The Athens flea market is, for some reason, full of chairs. Lots and lots of shops selling piles of chairs. No tables, just chairs. I was drawn to this scene for the contrast of the nicely restored chairs against the graffiti. (Athens is also quite full of graffiti, more of that later.) I'm not sure how I would describe the contrast, but it makes a striking statement to me.

I'm off in England right now, so no sharing from the Flickr pool today, but let's check in on our Exploring with a Camera theme of Visual Contrast. Have you found contrasts in your archive? How about when you go out with your camera? I'm betting that you are finding more contrasts than you ever expected, so come and share. We already have a number of great images in the link up and Flick pool. Do some exploring of other's images and see what cool interpretations have been found.


  1. It's a shame you weren't able to re-arrange the chairs a little. The two really ornate chairs that look a little like thrones would have looked great beside each other in front of the graffiti and without the brown chair in front. Sorry - not being picky! It's a great capture.

  2. Funny, I thought the contrast in this image was between the simple, smooth brown leather chair and the very ornate white and gold ones!

  3. Those chairs make me weak in the knees! Oh how I would *love* to get my hands on all of them. Perhaps a lil side trip to Greece is in order now...hmmm..... ;)


What's your view of the world? I love to hear yours too!
