Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

juxtaposition is “the act of placing things side by side, especially for the purpose of comparison or contrast” — as in this shot- Weekly Photo Challenge

Chinese New Year is in a few days.  Its this coming Friday, along with my huge deadline at work.  Fun stuff, right? I foresee overtime and if I don’t, well, its a bonus! 🙂

Either point of bringing that up is that, Chinese New Year also means that I go out and buy flowers and do some floral arrangement with this big vase from my cousin’s wedding that she gave us.

It took me probably 30 minutes to choose the flowers at store and I swear, it was getting uncomfortable when some ladies stood there and stared at me as I picked up flowers, put it next to the bouquet I already had and then put it back. Getting home and arranging them was even worse.  I blame on the funky purple shade I chose for the lilies.  It looked weird and then the stems were all twisted in weird ways.  As I started arranging, the red gerbera looked like they were dying and then the yellow flowers (forgot the name), looked like they weren’t too happy with me either.

I ended up putting the majority of the lilies with my other flowers that are waiting to bloom.  They are slowly doing it but hopefully by Friday it will be more colorful then just twigs….

Well, it did help with the whole compare and contrast juxtaposition topic so while I took a break from overtime work at home, I snapped a few photos of this 🙂
