Your Monday Photo Shoot: Silhouettes

"Watch me at the window from your place on the couch, watch me pretending that I am really looking out. You say, 'come here, I can't see you in this light,' but I'm much safer beside the moon tonight. 'Cause when I am a silhouette, I have no fear."


Your Monday Photo Shoot: Capture something in silhouette. Faces, bodies, trees, buildings - whatever is attractively shadowed is up for consideration.

-John Scalzi (By The Way)

Silhouettes you say...ok...as it just so happens I did some practicing with shadows and light. I think you have probably seen most of these, but not together at once, anyway, here goes...

"I'll fill those canyons in your soul, like a river lead you home. And I'll walk a step behind, in the shadows so you shine. Just ask, it will be done and I will prove, until you're sure, that I am the one."

-Gary Allen

Love them all!!!
Of course the lighthouse is my favorite, but all the rest are excellent too, especially the last 2.
