One thing we as photographers always look for is juxtapositions. Things like:
- Red vs green
- Blue vs yellow
- Old vs new
- Large vs small
- Clean vs dirty
- Square vs round
Or as in this case: conservative Islamic vs Western liberal:
Yes, that is the Great Pyramid.
Any juxtaposition makes us think “this is interesting”. And that makes for an interesting picture. So today’s tip: Whenever you see any kind of juxtaposition, have your “contrast-detector” go off, and ask yourself: “could there possibly be a picture here?” If in doubt, shoot!
Excellent idea. I haven’t used that word for years. I will look out for some good examples in Thailand: juxtaposition abounds here.
