corner view anniversary post (2): contrasts





------

jane's corner view is turning 'one' today. to celebrate, here are two corner views from last year. 

corner view has taught me to look with different eyes at my little corner of the world. thanks jane, you're the best!

contrasts are fabulous. thinking about it - without them we wouldn't even SEE anything, right? i love colour contrasts, the contrast of shadow and light, the clash of styles. my photos were taken in september, at art forum, berlin's annual art fair. isn't the colour contrast in the first just a dream? i couldn't believe my luck. the visitors in front of the neon tubes in the second shot almost turned into silhouettes against the bright light. and the clash of classic midcentury modern, scandinavian furniture with contemporary painting and those dramatic and yet calm african and asian artefacts was so inspiring.

generally, i'm a harmony seeker. sometimes perhaps overly so. but i think contrasts are making our world so much richer (and that includes contrasting opinions). they are really rather something to embrace, don't you think?

for more corner views around the world go visit dana's. jane is back from philly, back on the corner view carousel next week. welcome back, jane!

p.s.: if you have any thoughts on my camera question, please leave a comment, i'd love to hear from you! lots of food for thought already - thank you, me dears!

beautiful photos particularly the first. Are those Fritz Hansen chairs? I found a few at a thrift store with identification on. Check out the modernist dog houses at my local animal shelter you'll get a kick out of them.

Nice to know you via CV. Did you notice that someone seems to have dropped their business card in the post below? Speaking of music, come see about my giveaway :)

the first one is, indeed, a contrasting dream.

how do you manage to do it so inconspicuously? I always get told off at museums (and I'm just using my silly phone ;)

hooray to cv.

Contrasts, yes...there is much energy behind contrasts. I like the energy, but then on the other hand I seek harmony. I am a walking example of contrasts and contradictions I guess...:^)

You have such a photographic eye. Very gifted I see!
