Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways — Part II


_MG_9177

Kongo likes this week’s photo challenge so much he decided to submit two entries.  So today he was knocking about Old Town waiting for Mrs. Kongo to show up for a lunch date and took the picture above of a cactus against an adobe wall.  He really likes this image.  He likes the color of the wall and the muddy stain on the lower half against the green cactus.  And he likes the overall lighting which was in the shade of the building eave.

_MG_9254After lunch he was walking back toward his car and passed the same spot again and saw the cactus in a whole new light.  Literally.  The sun had moved past the eave and for the first time, Kongo saw the three windows trailing off to the right.  This seemed like such a simple picture.  The cactus, the wall, the windows.  But the simple pictures are sometimes the best, so this is the same shot a second way times two.

Kongo likes both the images.  Which is your favorite?

  1. I think I prefer the photo with the windows, shows so much of the stark setting for the cactus.

  2. I also prefer the one withthe windows…more of the context is sometimes better (not always but in this case I think it is important)…my two cents. (Suzanne)

  5. I think the second one is especially touching, the lonely cactus, the only spot of green surviving in the dry earth next to the building heating up in the sun. I love the first photo but when I saw the second it spoke to me more.
