Scavenger Hunt #34 – Juxtaposition

My goal with Hunt 34 was to do something closer to a “real” Scavenger Hunt and to take all my shots outside in the city. I have a mix of “found shots” and “places I know where I’ll be able to take a shot” for this round, and that felt pretty good. I also have a new, more compact camera than my Pentax “monster” – so I also wanted the opportunity to shoot with it more and get more comfortable with it: my other goal for this Hunt was “everything shot with the Fuji”.

I think “Juxtaposition” was not a shot that I had planned before I left the apartment, but it came to me when I arrived in the vicinity of the Landesmuseum – I remembered that there was some controversy about the extension of the museum, at least partly because it was supposed to be a building contrasting greatly with the older, end-of-19th century building. Remembering that, I wondered if there was a way to maybe show both in the picture – and it turns out that, probably by design, there was! I took a short walk around the place and took a number of pictures; this one ended up being my favorite. I also like the presence of the tree – which would be better if I had taken that picture in the summer and not in the dread of winter, probably! – to add a second element of juxtaposition.
