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!
