A 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.

Spring has sprung in Sardegna this weekend. With temperature lows of 10c and highs of 30c. The flowers are blooming and their scent floats in the warm air this weekend; a new season is sprouting. Mating Season. The cows are howling, the cats are going crazy and the town joker has begun his slow decent fuori. Escaping to the beach was the only answer. Sardegna is a blooming-exotic delicious island. Happy Spring. Happy Weekend. Please enjoy the following photo’s from a day at the beach.
