There’s little nuance in a silhouette… bang… it’s right there in deep contrast with all that surrounds it. It’s a simple graphic element that does not take much brain power to decipher. Yet, as simple as it is – at the same time – it is powerful and strong. Can’t ask for much more. Can you?

Bravo! The lack of anythng definitive in a silhouette challenges the brain to seek an almost frantic Rorschacht ink blot interpretation of what it is we are not seeing.in a certain artistic work. The mind adds the drama, details, setting and pseudo interpretation. Psychological insights the artist had at the time are irrelevant to the viewer. whose own psychological dynamic does on the spot interpretations for him or her. Your photo is dramatic and intriguing. An enjoyable setting. Thank you for sharing your work.
Thanks… photos can serve so many purposes. I like when I make one that lets the viewer fill in the story.
