I’ve put together some images featuring silhouettes from the past year. It was a surprise to find out I had any silhouettes at all in my collection. Am I alone avoiding backlighting rather than using it to achieve artistic goals? By thinking about these silhouettes and how I came by them, I learned something about my habits with a camera. And I get to show off scenes that rarely if ever make their way into my posts or pages. These selections illustrate seaside silhouettes from Galiano Island, BC Canada south to Yaquina Bay, Oregon.
