Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.

When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images. Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone. Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements. The resulting dialogue — they story they tell — is the creation of each viewer’s individual perception.

Challenge:  Bring together two of your photos into dialogue. What do they say to each other?

In the photos above, the ornate gate with brick and ivy walkway makes me wonder – what’s beyond? Perhaps a secret, lush garden in full bloom?

The orange rays of the setting sun are reflected in the nautical marker as we head home at day’s end.

Day and night provide different views of this nautical scene.
