I love a beautiful silhouette.
It rarely matters of what. Every silhouette is shrouded in drama and mystery, and more than a drop or two of romance. I love silhouettes for what I don’t see as much as for what I do. Sure you can see more when the subject is in the light, but I think it’s the darkness that ignites the imagination. It draws the viewer in and makes her think about what she’s seeing. I shoot silhouettes wherever I go. I find them compelling and a wonderful way to showcase a destination.
Take a moment to look at the photos below, and you tell me….. don’t you want to go?
