Travel Theme: Silhouette

Fridays are full of fantastic photo challenges and Ailsa’s travel theme this week is a beautiful display of silhouette(s).

It is the Late city that first defies the land, contradicts Nature in the lines of its silhouette, denies all Nature. It wants to be something different from and higher than Nature. These high-pitched gables, these Baroque cupolas, spires, and pinnacles, neither are, nor desire to be, related with anything in Nature.
