Weekend Photo Theme is a weekly photography article where either Dale or Franca will choose a theme, select 5 pictures to sum that theme up & tie them together with their interests of Art, Design & Travel.

Within our Hiking in the Cinque Terre post, you may have seen one of my favourite shots, a shot of my silhouette at a time where we had finally come to the apex of our hike & finally got a few minutes to be in the shade & take a much deserved breather.

This shot, to be precise:

Dale's shadow - Weekend Photo Theme - Silhouettes

I love the dark colors, the capture of a paused moment; even the tops of my shoes poking into the bottom of the picture.

Silhouettes come when the light is right, the time is right & the moment is taken.

Here are some great pictures that showcase that fact.
