The Streets of San Francisco

I don’t often bite the hook of the photo challenge. I’m a writer, and though my blog features fantastic photography, the photo taking is usually the work of my talented husband, Bruce. He blogs over at through the luminary lens.

But this week, the writer in me couldn’t resist the challenge.

Juxtapose – to set something in close proximity to another in order to highlight a contrast.

Writers often have life-long love affairs with certain words and I’ve always been wild about the word juxtaposition. The moment I saw the photo challenge post, the perfect depiction popped into my head and it just happens to be a picture I took myself!

Streets of San Francisco

I snapped this on the streets of San Francisco in 2010 and didn’t realize what I had captured until later – a billboard sign of a beautiful woman in sunglasses perfectly framed through the sides of a passing San Francisco fire truck.

What could be a better juxtaposition?
