opposites attract


Country and city.  Earth and light.  Subdued and energized.  Brown and blue.  My diptych, shot on a walk in the woods, captures the light and textures of the winter landscape.  Piecesofmejen's photo (which, coincidentally echoes the diptych style) embodies the boundless sparkle and wonder of a walk in the city.  Opposite in every way, but oh so complementary together. 

You can see more of Jen's citywalk here, and more of my countrywalk here.

Hope your new year is off to a wonderful start.

Until next time.
