Silhouette Thursday


Bridget suggested to the photo club that we photograph silhouettes...and so I did, partial and complete. Above, the inside of my cupped hand brought an unexpected surprise- the reddish glow. Below, I photograph the only self-portrait that I can tolerate looking at!
Separate Photos

Put the two together to make the whole. It was tricky to get my image to line up! Thanks for the suggestion Bridget. I used my news lens for all the images and so it was fun to practice today. Is there symbolism to my first image and the ones that follow? Does love make one whole? or does a complete individual make one whole? Can one be truly whole without love? Love for another or oneself?

I love how your pictures represent some deeper thoughts about life and love. They are mysterious yet moving in composition and style. I agree with Bridget about love being a mystery, but I also have a different take. We love because God first loved us. 1 John 4: 7-21

I really like your creativity doing this assignment. And your thought provoking text. But here's my take on love. If we don't love God and accept His love, then nothing else will fall into place. He loved us first for absolutely NO OTHER REASON than He wanted to. We don't deserve it. Now that's real love! And that's what gives us the ability to love others and be loved by them. I'll also quote the verse that Jayme used. 1 John 4:7-21
