For you too relaxed night
Cute! I wonder what they are saying to each other…
S: What an odd, ugly-looking swan she is! C: Look at that dumb swan. One would say he has never seen a crow in his life!

Happy Thursday, Paula!
Have a good one too, Lisa 🙂
Principal and pupil? That’s what the body language says to me, but then I’ve been thinking about my teaching life. I like the starkness of the surrounds – all context obliterated. Speaks opposites in many ways beyond the obvious size.
Thank you very much my dear 🙂 I think the swan is about to be taught 😀

If without opposites, we would miss them… 🙂
“You couldn’t have strength without weakness,
you couldn’t have light without dark,
you couldn’t have love without loss”
*Jodi Picoult – american novelist*
Yeah! That’s an inspiring “opposite quote” 🙂 Thank you, Drake.

Welcome back! 🙂 Great trip? I just spotted ‘a dream come true’ in the sidebar so that might be relevant 🙂
Spiffing! How have you been?
Terrible cold just after my Polish trip but Spring has washed it away 🙂 🙂 That dream photo is so very ‘you’.
Oh, I am sorry to hear that. You should have been in Algarve at 40 Celsius. What can I say – I am true to myself 😉 😀
😀 Thanks, Sue
I’m not sure who to put my money on here: the large one has the size & weight, the small one has the speed and a pointy beek…
I bet on the crow.
I have one for you – the pictures illustrate the quote, even if they aren’t what you’d think of as opposite! http://travelwithintent.com/2015/05/21/opposite-colour-lovers-chagall-pickle-istanbul/
Wonderful, colourful, and very new to me. Thanks a bunch, Debbie!

Nice to see you back. 🙂
Were they talking or arguing? 🙂
They were sizing each other up 😀
I like the colours in this – the way the same mottled hues of the pebbles behind are repeated, in differing degrees, in the plumage of the swan and crow. Can imagine this being transformed into some kind of lino print. Well caught though – very big bird and not so little bird. And yes, crows are bound to be the winners in any game.
🙂 Thank you, Tish, for your perceptive comment. It so nice to see you again.
Hi Paula! “You can never be on the opposite side of a bridge.” 🙂
Brilliant! Grazie caro 🙂
Just a foolish thought while looking at it: Batman and Robin.
On a more serious note: Differences that attract and last, that is invaluable.
The photo is cute and enticing. It even got me carried away with my silliness.
Welcome back, querida!
You are right – differences that are compatible is a winning combination. Obrigada pela tua atencao minha querida.
Minha querida Paula, creio que voltou mais fluente em português!
😀 😉 voce e muito amavel 🙂
Tão amável quanto a sua inteligência. 🙂

The photo made me chuckle Paula. I wonder what they are chatting about?
🙂 You can never know for sure with a crow 😉 Hi Sue 🙂

Hello Lor 🙂 Nice to see you.
If only I could read in their brains…..
The photo in itself is fantastic and then , there’s the challenge theme ……!
P.S. ……my opposites are birds, too…
And I bet they’re quarreling!
Oh yes, most definitely 🙂
Hola de nuevo, Paula. Esta es mi colaboración:
Acabo de verlo. Muy bien querida Mariangeles. Me encantan las posibilidades de interpretacion y tu contribuiste con algo diferente. Gracias 🙂
For all the difference in their sizes they do appear to be eying each other . . .
😀 swan is not a match for the shifty crow

Hi Paula, I love that picture – it has a lot of potential for interpretations.
Here is my attempt at opposites. Since I am studying the aesthetic potential of walls (sounds good, right?) it may not be quite as original as the birds … and some other entires here. Anyhow: http://empireoflights.com/2015/05/22/opposite-walls/
It does sound good and it looks even better 🙂 I like the idea you presented to me in your mail and that capture 🙂
There is certainly a size difference but I put my money on the little bloke.
Here is mine http://irenewaters19.com/2015/05/21/thursdays-special-opposites-the-old-bakehouse/
😀 mine too. I’ve just read your post. You always take us to fascinating places 🙂
I just love that photo of yours! So perfect, and quite unusual too!
🙂 😉 Thank you
wünsche schon heute ein schönes Pfingstfest, Klaus
Here’s my take Paula https://dailymusing57.wordpress.com/2015/05/22/thursdays-special-opposites/
Thank you so much. I love it, DM, two opposites of nature.
This is so adorable. Love it
🙂 Hello Raewyn
Nice catch Paula! They both seem to be a little intrigued by each other’s appearance 🙂
“No Way” is brilliant.
😀 Yes, Drake can be brilliant sometimes 😀
