"J' is for Juxtaposition
Juxtaposition is the act or placement of two things (usually abstract concepts) near each other. Here are a few of my favorite. This is no particular order, just as they appeared in my directory.
This one reminds me of my kitchen at this point in time. I've been working on overdrive so no one has been to the grocery store. Also, when I am stressed I eat strange combinations of food, like peanut butter, jelly, and bologna. Yeah, I know.
Having worked on high school and college news papers, I am acutely aware of the multitude of decisions which accompany page layouts, but this one takes the cake.
This is my favorite. The simplicity of the yin and yang represented in coffee and milk. Basic. Crisp. Elegant. Coffee.
What are your favorite juxtapositions? Anyone use them in their writing? In what capacity?
