You could make White one city and Black another. Or, if you want to get
political, you could make one side  buildings and other urban artifacts,
and the other side trees and other living things. Be tricky to come up with
a design that left no ambiguity as to which piece was which, but I think it
could be done (opines someone with no design experience).
