Why buy one Melon when you can treat yourself to two Melons? A cool, cloudy autumnal day in September. The greengrocery store is packed with all sorts of fruit. It wasn’t so busy today, but then again it was early. This guy pulled up in a van, jumped out and picked up the two melons. The bright yellow of the fruit contrasting against a very dismal grey background gave the photograph a life of its own.
I often look for contrasting colours in everyday life. Red and green are two that happens a lot in nature. Red roses and their green foliage. The yellow melons could have been well placed against a blue background. It’s a shame the guys van wasn’t blue instead of white.
If I was confident enough to give out photography tips (which I’m not) I would always say, look for contrasting colours in your photographs. It can make a mundane photo stand out from the crowd.
