Michele W. @ WordPress has suggested the topic of “juxtaposition” for this week’s photo challenge. The word itself, I’m sorry to say, leads me to compare my first language – English – with my command of the language – needs work. I’m not sure I really have the concept of juxtaposition down, but maybe you can tell me.
Here’s what I came up with.
Metal posters displayed one next to the other for your viewing pleasure and to entice you to pick and choose.
Bright Light exhibit at the Discovery Museum in Cherry Hill, NJ. A place where kids can experience science and nature and the wonders of the imagination. (Don’t think I didn’t participate!)
And last, but most certainly not least, me comparing myself to a new acquaintance, to see how successful my weight loss efforts have been.
Now you tell me? Juxtaposition or just jibberish?

I’d say you’re successful on weight loss, wtg Gemma! Love the photos.
Thanks. It ain’t easy, but when you’re not feeling anything but tired and crummy, you need to do something.
Re the photos, thanks as well. 😉

I really liked bright light as a kid. I played with it for hours.
That Discovery Museum is a blast. Thanks for the visit, Cee. And thanks for all the foodie ideas! 🙂
I’m not ashamed to say, wordsmith that I am, I looked it up. So no. Not jibberish. Perfection. Weightloss wise, that skeleton has nothing on you! I’m surprised when you go to Weight Watchers that the other clients don’t bombard you with half-eaten jelly donuts!
If they did I’d have to cheat!
Perfection! I’ll take that any day, G. Thanks.

Beautiful! Must admit i am the most drawn to the bright lights (i must have been a moth or something like that in my previous life) – would have enjoyed my imagination being surprised! 🙂
Those lights are the most fun. But every time I make a design, someone that works there comes and puts all the tubes back in the bin after I walk away. They act like it’s just for the kids! What about those of us that are kids at heart?!?!?!
Yes, that is a bit rude – inviting everyone to play and then keeping interrupting the process! 😀
Spot on with your command of language, honeybun. 🙂 I really like the metal posters shot.
Thanks, Jo. I liked so many of them that I bought NONE of them! Too many choices give me a headache. 😉
Thanks for the “spot on”. I don’t always hear that. It sounds nice.
I haven’t seen that game in ~30 years!
The fun thing is that it’s as tall as I am! I got a little obsessive about it. When they tore it down, I built it back up! Don’t mess with my art! 😉
You look great! I am trying so hard. I work out 4- 5-6 times per week including 1000’s of sit-ups/core/crunchs and my waist is getting bigger but my ass is tight? Can you explain that? I was reading about Spirulina today….
I am leery of pills, natural or otherwise, but it’s something to ask my doc about. I used to do the gym but without proper food intake, it’s useless for losing weight far as I’m concerned. Builds muscle, yes. But weight loss. I don’t know. Didn’t work for me and I went vigilantly for two years. I was almost fanatical! I’m doing weight watchers now, actually. Since April. It isn’t easy, but nobody says it will be, no matter what avenue you take. I was amazed at how much I ate before. Do I miss it? Yes. Do I feel better now though? Definitely. And I enjoy shopping for clothes now. 😉
Here’s a link in case you need more info. Never heard of it. Thanks for the turn on…http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2011/07/01/spirulina-the-amazing-super-food-youve-never-heard-of.aspx
Yes I read extensively about it last night. I eat like shit. I am going to try it in pill form from GNC. Athletic Greens is over $100.00 and it’s a powder ..UGH!
You are one great looking lady Gemma and that skeleton can do with a few pounds. LOL!
Great entry for the challenge hon and stunning shots! 😀 *hugs*
Oh man. I am blushing. Thanks, Sonel. Hard work and good genes. More the good genes. 😉
Making science fun has to be a win win only wish it had been that way for me Gemma 😉
Think you’ve a great collection here . Top marks for losing some pounds , you look terrific in those photos …
I was the pits at chemistry and biology, but I still find science interesting. Thanks for the kind words, poppy.
You are welcome Gem 🙂
Looking good, Gemma. 🙂 That’s quite a selection of posters. I’ll go for the “Know your limits” one.
Good choice, ad. Kind of like, Coffee 5 cents. Huh? When was that? I think before I drank coffee.
When last could you buy anything for 5 cents? 🙂
I’m scratching my head and smoke’s coming out of my ears. I can’t remember. 😉
😆 I thought as much.
Your hard work has paid off! Jeff is a lucky man.
Aww thanks, Dawn, but I’m the lucky one. 😉
Well I don’t know Jeff, I only “know” you. I must surmise that you are both lucky.
To know him is to love him. 🙂
That made me grin 🙂
