    For this week's challenge, the subject will be opposites that have some type of connection to them. Both objects/people/subjects must be in the same photo and must have some type of connection or tension between them.

    It will not be easy to just find two opposite while out on a photo walk. You could get lucky in nature or street photography with animals or people who are connected somehow but opposite like a grandparent and grandchild or a tall and short couple... be on the look out while you are out and about and be ready to shoot! More likely, you will have to plan out what you are going to shoot.

    As always, new photos only for this challenge. Get out there and shoot!

    Looks like a very tough but interesting challenge. Hope I can participate more than I've been able to in the previous.

    We all know cats do not like water but this boy is either going to do the washing up for me or wants a bath

    Probably the simplest explanation "opposites attract" because otherwise these sliding doors will not close! :D

    My first submission was (hopefully) humorous. This one has a more serious tone.

    For those of you who may be unfamiliar, this is the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington DC.

    It is interesting to me that this woman is smiling but I take it as a testiment to this memorial's power for healing.

    Followup: I edited this on my phone and seeing it here I notice that it is way over saturated!
