Thematic Photographic 192 - Silhouette
London, ON, April 2012
This week's theme, silhouette, celebrates the fact that for the first few years of my photographic existence, I had as much ability to properly expose film as a Syrian dictator can appreciate and leverage democracy. Unlike said dictator, I eventually figured it out. Sort of.
I've come to appreciate the simplicity of a silhouetted shot because it strips things down to their simplest levels - and I'm about as simple as they come. Watching my son at the playground on this late spring afternoon, I realized even a stripped down snippet of the moment can somehow capture the joy of a life that continues to teach me new ways to look at the world.
Funny how parenthood can work sometimes.
