Parallels & Juxtaposition


I live in a place of the world where you can't miss the change of the seasons. But even in the placidity of snow, winter can look different. Take a look at the changing times around my town in these analogue photos and note the parallelism.

The first one is from February which means we had had snow for some 3 months.

The second one is an evening of snow. The ground was clean 12 hours prior to taking the photo.

I seem to be fascinated with train tracks. The first one is an unsupervised crossing, and the second one is from a train station where a whole piece of the fence is missing so you can just run in there freely and snap away to your hearts content.

Again on the tracks. The second one here is from the same night as the top first one. I’ve never seen such a large amount of snow come down so quick.

Olso vs. my hometown Luleå, also Winter vs. Summer. All the daylight vs. barely any daylight. Different kinds of blue. I like them both.

Old tire vs. new tire

Spring vs. winter. My cat coming to say hi vs. my cat going off on a daily stroll of his.

Have you discovered some interesting parallels in all of your pictures? Maybe you have a lot of juxtaposition going on in your pictures? Out of these parallels, which one is your favourite? I think it’s my cat Gizmo but I might be biased. :)

    great article! i love train tracks too so, i'd have to say those are my favorite sets.
    also, that's pretty damn exciting about the Lubitel - I'm hoping to save up for a horizon - i have just over 100 piggies with a long way to go!
