This rather elitist and arty sounding word “juxtapositon” has become a bit more popular in recent times. When I first heard this word out loud it was in the context of some conceptual art TV programme it sounded a bit niche (and way beyond me), somewhat highfalutin and perhaps unnecessary? Since then if ever I have heard it used in every day speak it does sound a bit pretentious. But in reality the word does a good job of what it describes:
“the fact of two things being seen or placed close together with contrasting effect”; in effect “compare and contrast” .
And so here is my Llama Juxtaposition – a photo taken recently in a field on a hill (hence the slant) near my home, not strictly the way to use this word but where I might just about get away with it.
