Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition
A juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast” THIS WEEK, IN A POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO SHOWING JUXTAPOSITION.
There isn’t zoning here like we are used to in the US, so it is common to see commercial businesses in residential areas. Here is a nice home on the right, and business on the left that takes care of big buses. In our residential area you can also find a body shop, a mechanic, a couple welders, a cheese business, a few restaurants, and a convenience store run out of someone’s home, to name just a few things. If you buy a home it’s good to be aware that anything can happen nearby but it’s also nice that people are free to do what they need to do, including run a business out of their home.
I put fruit in the bird feeder and we get a lot of visitors. It’s rare to see two different kinds of birds eating at the same time. Today though, these two were doing just fine together.
Last, but not least, it’s summer and there seems to be flowers everywhere. I thought the juxtaposition of the two colors of bougainvillea were very pretty, and then the juxtaposition of all the flowers in front of this house was equally beautiful.
I am also a bird lover. Unforunately on our island we have mainly black birds, sparrows and kingfishers and à few small parrots in the rainforest. We have a male and female sparrow couple that have a nest just outside our house in a tree. Every morning before sunrise I put a plate with food on the kitchen counter and a small cup with water. After a year they are very tame now and fly and play in our house.
We call them Fred and Maya.
You will love it here! I think there are more species of birds in Panama than in the whole of North America.
