Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrast

Contrast over the Lagoon of Venice

I usually think about “contrast” like something that concern colors, or lights and shadows. This time I tried to think about it in a different way.. so here it is. In this picture the contrast is between what stands still and what flows by. Peoples seem to flow just like water does and their traces are soon to be lost. What stands still here is a sculpture byΒ Charles Ray called “Boy with Frog” thatΒ depicts a boy holding a goliath frog above St. Mark’s square. So, that’s it! Now you try and give a meaning to this! πŸ˜‰

I took this picture from Punta della Dogana, Venice, soon after dawn. ND filter on, 17 mm, f/14, 4 sec.
