"Contrast clarifies and heightens and effect. To make a white paper brighter, place a black mark upon it. Punctuate the silence with a scream, the night with a candle, and muted tones with a spot of intense color. Contrast is used to draw attention to an area, to provide stability or clarity in a composition, and to affect the figure/ground relationship, either by clarifying or confusing it."
~Tim McCreight, Design Language

Tricia's Challenge:

This definition is talking about art and design, but how well can you show contrast in your writing? Use the comment field to write a paragraph or two that clearly displays contrast.
