This one could easily be titled "grow where you're planted", but I'm not going that cliché. No, this photo is really about contrasts. Does your novel have them? Does your protagonist have a foil, another character rife with opposing characteristics--greedy when the MC is generous, vindictive when the MC is forgiving, meticulous when the MC is slovenly...
Contrast helps bring out a character's traits and creates drama and suspense. Contrast makes for good fiction.
Hope your day is full of contrast. In a good way, of course.
