Contrasts May 26, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Art & Photography, Mindfulness, Nature, Poetry.

Opposites exist for a simple reason
Everything has a time, place and season
Contrast provides our days with texture
Nothing in life is a permanent fixture

This looks like the evil robot from one of the Terminator movies.

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Good and evil . . . contrasting textures, indeed.

Life’s duality. It’s odd, but I see calmness and a sweet surrender to life in the painting. Hmmm. 🙂

Same here, Marie . . . relaxation and repose.

Nice little poem. Puts things into perspective.

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Contrast provides the variety we need for life’s spice.

I really like this, Nancy!

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Thanks, Janet. I look forward to the unveiling of Sidey’s theme each week.

Funky photo! Thank goodness for contrast – how boring would life be otherwise?

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Yes, exactly. In the movie, Pleasantville . . . everything is a dull and dreary landscape of perfect people pleasing other perfect people. As some chaos gets mixed into the landscape, the landscape becomes more and more color-filled.

Great image – it’s a photo, right? Love the poem – thank you, Nancy 🙂

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Yes, it’s a photo shopped with special effects ~ metallica. Thanks. Glad you like the poem excerpt.

7. CMSmith - May 27, 2012

I agree. Cool photo. Is that a photoshop filter?

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Thanks, Christine. Close. It’s an HP Photosmart filter ~ Metallica.

I like the photo – demonstrates your theme perfectly. I always say that it is sickness that causes me to appreciate health.

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

And pain (such as a headache or backache) makes me appreciate its absence once it departs the premises. 😀

It sure keeps life interesting and full of surprises… Here today, contrast tomorrow. Life goes on. That photo is really cool.
Have a peaceful Memorial Day Nancy. I wish you and yours well!

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Thanks, E! Contrast (and uncertainty) keep things from getting too dull in Pleasantville.

Love it: and so true. We’re all individual, as Brian told the Crowd in Life Of Brian. We’re all different.

nrhatch - May 27, 2012

Yes! Vive la difference!

11. Three Well Beings - May 28, 2012

I don’t know if that’s a photo or what it is, but it’s mesmerizing. I like it! I particularly like the line “Nothing in life is a permanent fixture.” I’m aware of this and sometimes still fight it! Good to think about tonight, Nancy. Thanks…Debra

nrhatch - May 28, 2012

Thanks, Debra. We grow attached to things as they are, but change comes just the same. Parents age. Children grow from toddlers to teens in the blink of an eye. Life’s stages fly.

Weather done digitally
or with chemistry and sun
a little solorization is always fun!
