Opposites Won by One
What would bring a one horned horse, and tyransaurus rex, and a minion together? Only a carnival machine at the Green Turtle sports bar in Aberdeen MD. And you know they will be best friends forever since it is impossible to win. But go ahead and try!

Assignment: Dear creative Framers, our task this week is to not only photograph subjects that we do not expect to see together but to also portray the attraction between them. The photo is not just about the different two elements but also about the connection or tension between them. Think for example of a wrinkly grandmother holding a toddler in her arms (the opposites) and the toddler is gently touching the granny’s skin (the attraction). Or a tall and short person not only standing next to each other but also making eye contact over the distance that separates them. Two women dressed in dressed in clothes from different religious but cooking together in a kitchen. This challenge has a strong storytelling element to it. The attraction between the two elements pulls the viewer in and will make her wonder how the two opposites came together in the first place OR what is going to happen next. Don't worry if you find yourself without models this week. By just placing two different objects next to each other, you are already creating tension in your photo.
