Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast
I once again had to search a little to find a fitting photo for this week’s challenge but I think this works on a number of levels:
Contrast 1 (most important) – the contrast between the peaceful meditation in the foreground with a central theme of truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance and the toxic environment of distrust, demonization, and total lack of meaningful discourse that is currently taking place in our Congress.
Contrast 2 – the fact that most of these meditators are immigrants in contrast to the nation’s total inability to address the immigration issue in a positive and constructive way.
Contrast 3 – the combination of old and young among the meditators. and,
Contrast 4 – the obvious photographic contrast of the stark B&W…
As always, I apologize if my characterization offends anyone but this political season and the rhetoric of the current campaigns is really making me wonder where we are going as a country.
