Simultaneous contrast is not just a curious optical phenomenon - it is the very heart of painting. Josef Albers
Peering from the top of the tower of the Tybee Lighthouse
An empty shore and a peaceful ocean stood afar
Not a soul in sight unlike the busy lighthouse.
A picket fence evoked a nostalgic and solemn mood.
It's small scale contrasted with the towering lighthouse.
Life like art is a study in contrasts.
Martin Luther King Jr.’s life was a study in contrasts.
He was an advocate for peace but died a violent death.
He led non violent protesters who were met with murderous attacks.
He preached about loving enemies.
He spoke of freeing persecutors.
Many of his most famous quotes are founded on contrasts:
Injustice to anyone is a threat to justice everywhere.
When I am not traveling to or painting lighthouses, I am writing or researching lighthouses.
