    OK friends. For our 28th Salon Challenge I am looking for incongruous juxtaposition, whacky combinations of subject matter, pole opposites etc. Can be human, animal, architecture, art....whatever. I will leave it to your fevered imaginations (I know there are some out there!)

    I am away on 26th of this month, and will then be on the long drive from Darwin to Melbourne. A combination of lack of wifi and jet lag may cause delay. Will know more when in situ'.


    The fine print:

    1. Either take pictures that match the nominated theme or select some from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the images in order to enter it.

    2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement pictures that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photochallenge, after all!

    4. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the PL Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    5. The curator cannot enter his or her own salon.

    I will start the ball rolling with examples:

    From the cradle to the grave:

    Note the signs on either side. This really happened in Seal Beach Calif., lasting several days.

    I think this can almost be called sitting on the fence. Subtle!

    you should be able to figure it out...
    Not really a serious submission, but one I couldn't resist. The esteemed host of this challenge apparently relieving himself in public... It might or might not actually be as it appears...

    Wacky incongruent multi-image from one of my 'I'll never follow the rules' bouts of creativity.

    No, similar construction but that is a building in Boston.

    Not certain if this qualifies as an example of incongruous juxtaposition - but to me, the notion of a real physical car (yes, an automobile) sticking out of a real physical building .... has more than a little of surreal juxtaposition.

    this antique tractor looked really out of place in the snow...with the modern city payday loan store in the background.

    I'll put this one in for now. The odd part is that the picture on the right is a painting, not a typical image for as real estate business:
