“Silhouettes say a lot with little information…” (Kara Walker)

Silhouettes can embrace a subject and set a mood.

Silhouetted leaves can create a sense of drama.

Silhouettes and shadows dance together to the song of nature.

Silhouettes can make one look up and wonder.

    A wonderful set, Olga and great thoughts on silhouettes. I especially love the mother and the kids in your first shot. The tension between the child and mother is wonderful–in terms of conveying the mood here. Really well done!

    Well done – and the captions are interesting. Love the way you are thinking. My favorite is the first shot – a human interaction that is understood with only seeing body language.

    Love your opener this week Olga. One wonders if mom was keeping the kids dry or enjoying family playtime. Fun!

      Thanks, Tina. πŸ™‚ Glad that the opener made you curious about the story. Actually how the mother holds the boy’s arm on the left hints at the answer.
