Inverse Parallels #1

These two photographs came across my radar yesterday and I thought they seemed to go together nicely, even though they’re opposites in many regards.  Michael David Murphy riffs on this phenomenon with his ‘Same Same But Different’ feature on 2point8.  I think I’m looking for photographs that perhaps have one strong primary similarity while everything else in the frame seems to be opposite.  In this instance, you have the stark female hand with nails in both, yet one is in vibrant color while the other is contrasty black and white.  I’m not sure ‘Inverse Parallel’s’ accurately defines what I’m getting at, but it’s the best I could come up with for the time being.
