Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts

201406dp2_DSC5301Thinking outside the box can get you in trouble or make you millions. I’m not a millionaire.

The idea of contrasts immediately evokes black and white images with lots of chiaroscuro and shades of gray. My brain goes to light/dark, high/low, big/little… the obvious stuff. The box seems too easy unless there’s a really outstanding image lurking in your inventory. So, what about time? Time lapse? Long exposure? Day/night? Sunrise/sunset? How different yet potentially so much the same. So I gave in… it’s not “a photograph” at all… just the contrast in light falling on the same scene at sunrise and sunset on the same day and a contrast in time.

Or is it a comparison? Remember those, “please read and compare and contrast” questions from the literature teacher whose name you’ve blotted from your memory?

Either way… here’s Rockaway Beach in Pacifica, California at sunrise and sunset.
