Lens-artist photo challenge: Silhouettes

I’m inspired by the lens-artists photo challenge to do a bonus post this week. You can see more silhouettes of find the challenge here.

There is something about silhouettes that is particularly touching . . . haunting . . . inspiring.

I’ve added some of my own.

Technically, this is a shadow, but I like it anyway – from Mont Sainte Anne, Quebec

    Lovely silhouettes! I don’t know why I don’t get notifications of your blog posts anymore. I just subscribed again a few weeks ago. I’ll have to chalk it up to internet gremlins, I guess. :-/

      Well, I’m glad you found me! Perhaps your settings for the site need to be changed to receive notifications? When I subscribe to a new site, I usually have to go in and select how I want to receive the posts and when.

    Welcome to the challenge, Arlene. I love the variety of your shots here and the moods they convey. I am especially drawn to your shot of Anna Maria Island. What fabulous light and a great composition. The mood is marvelous. It makes me want to jump into the shot! Glad you joined us!
