Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

East meets West with high tea at Bangkok’s Erawan Tearoom.

So I’m breaking a rule for the city daily photo and digging back into the archive. This photo shows last year’s spring kite festival, held in April, where participants and spectators had to deal with the snow. Truly memorable, and cold.

Here’s how it works:

1. Each week, we’ll provide a theme for creative inspiration. You take photographs based on your interpretation of the theme, and post them on your blog (a new post!) anytime before the following Friday when the next photo theme will be announced.

2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Weekly Photo Challenge: (theme of the week)” and be sure to use the “postaday″ tag.

3. Follow The Daily Post so that you don’t miss out on weekly challenge announcements, and subscribe to our newsletter – we’ll highlight great photos from each month’s most popular challenge.
