Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

silhouette is the image of a person, an object or scene represented as a solid shape of a single color, usually black, its edges matching the outline of the subject. The interior of a silhouette is basically featureless, and the whole is typically presented on a light background, usually white, or none at all. The silhouette differs from an outline which depicts the edge of an object in a linear form, while a silhouette appears as a solid shape. Silhouette images may be created in any visual artistic media.¹

Silhouette photos haunt me; this week’s photo challenge haunts me. I’m not super artistic when it comes to these types of shots and actually prefer to never take them. It wouldn’t be called a challenge if it weren’t, well, challenging.

Do your silhouette photo’s have hints of colour like mine?

    • It wasn’t a planned shot at all! We were returning from the bar late one night and I noticed the advert on a bus shelter and told me friend to snap this photo. It was fast and late, and super fun!

  6. I have never been good at Silhouettes, but yours are amazingly beautiful. My husband loves ichnusa beer from Sardegna. Wish I could get it here in California! Have a great day! Keep on taking pictures! We all enjoy them!

    May God Bless!
    The Sard/American,

  7. I have two photos in mind but there are so many challenges going around, I can’t keep up. Do the challenges, or read the blogs? Be selective I guess is the answer, Jen. Nice selection.

    • There are a lot of challenges going around, I know what you mean. I’ve stuck with just two – this one and Ailsa’s Travel theme. I can’t be bothered joining more – it stresses me out slightly! 😉
