Juxtaposition – Picture Fall, day 16

Hello!  Escaped down to Cape Cod for a quick visit this weekend, so I’m a bit behind posting the daily photo prompt and getting back to you fine folks who left me comments.  It is 9pm as I am writing this post, so I hope to get caught up with everyone soon, but not tonight.  I’m also currently having some computer issues, don’t know if it is my computer, my internet service or particular websites causing the problem, so please bear with me!

The photo prompt for Saturday, October 16, was called Juxtaposition.  The instructor was looking for a photo that evoked more than one or opposite feelings.  I thought this photo of Meghan soaking up some of the last warmth at the beach on the Cape while wrapped in her thick sweatshirt gave a feeling of both warmth and cold:

Picture Fall, day 16

The sun was surprisingly warm, while the wind still had the coolness of the sea.   With warm cups of coffee, tea or hot chocolate we braved the autumn ocean breeze, while still enjoying the sun on our faces.


  1. This is too funny. My photo for this prompt is along the same lines. I uploaded it to the gallery but haven’t done a blog post yet. Great minds think alike!

    • I just went and looked at your picture – how true! Gee, we live in the same town, vacation the same place, think of similar photos; I think our world is getting a little smaller! 😉

  2. How funny! All that’s missing is a beach ball LOL
    I can’t wait for thick sweatshirts and a nice chilly wind…. we’re still in T-shirts, but at least we seem to have seen the last of the 90’s (fingers crossed!!)

    • Michaela, sometimes I wonder if our two souls have ended up in the wrong states! You are waiting for the cool, and I am lamenting the loss of the heat. Or perhaps it is that human feeling of always wanting what we don’t have! 🙂

  3. This makes me long for the beach. It fits the prompt wonderfully. 🙂

    • Thank you Robin. It was really nice to enjoy that probable last warmth of the season by the sea.

  4. Reminds me of when I was in college and lay out in the sun (in April!) between the dorm and the snowbank…..anything for a bit of sunshiny warmth!

  5. Oh yes, Cindy! By April, we are definitely craving the sun. I’ve been known to sit on my kitchen floor on a sunny winter day in the sunbeam from the sliding glass doors!

  6. Jolie photo 🙂 je sens le soleil et le vent, comme des vacances á la mer. Ici il fait 4-5°C, impossible de se dorer au soleil 😦

    • I’m sure that our days of sunbathing have come to an end for this year too. Although we are lucky enough to enjoy a few more days of warmer than normal temperatures this week – it will be around 71 F – 21C for a few days! 🙂
