ROBBIE THE ROBOT WITH FLOWERS: JUXTAPOSITION – THURSDAY’S SPECIAL

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: JUXTAPOSITION


A literary technique in which two or more ideas, places, characters and their actions are placed side by side in a narrative or a poem for the purpose of developing comparisons and contrasts. A useful device for writers to portray their characters in great detail to create suspense and achieve a rhetorical effect. 

Photographically, when two things are placed together for effect; or when two things being seen or placed close together for contrasting effect.

It is a human quality to comprehend one thing more easily by comparing it to another. So when you look at the bouquets of flowers compared to a handsome robot, ponder the deeper meaning.

  1. Great juxtaposiitons Marilyn. Robbie looks well at home with the flowers and I love your variety of shots on this. Great use of light and shadow to add a spot more juxtaposition 🙂

    • When Robbie came to live with us, I had no idea what to do with him. I didn’t want to keep him in his box, but what do you do with a plastic, talking, movie robot? Answer: put him on the top of the woodstove and make him part of the flower arrangements. It has worked out surprisingly well 😀
