Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition (Crossed Wires)   69 comments

A juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast.”

I was on my way to Iowa while the sun was setting and I passed by this power plant and saw a potential there for a photograph. So I carefully backed up and pulled to a stop on the side of the highway, grabbed my camera and hustled to where I could get the shot I wanted.

There was a man standing in the approximate neighborhood but he didn’t seem to be bothered by my presence.

As the sun was disappearing rather fast, as sunsets do, I didn’t have time to grab a tripod. Whatever I came up with was going to have to be the result of a low-light hand-held camera.

I got off several shots but this is the only one that came out even close to what I was trying to achieve. A tripod would have made it a better shot, I think, but sometimes you just have to seize the moment. I hope you enjoy it.

Comments are welcome.
