Silhouette


This is my entry in a neat meme called I Heart Faces. Click on this button to check it out



The theme this week is silhouette. A silhouette is usually a photo that didn't turn out the way you wanted. This photo was taken at a friends home in Belize. This beautiful little girl is named Zinnia. I always liked this photo, but thought it was a bit dark. It makes an interesting silhouette, and her eyes are striking.

This photo was taken at the Polk County Relay For Life. One of the activities in the early morning hours was open mike where anyone could sing. As I was trying to take photos in such low light conditions, I went around the back of the stage and aligned the shot so that the singe hid the spotlight.

  4. I love Zinnia's picture. She is beautiful! I also love the singer! Really cool capture. I know the contest is over already, but that would have been one of my favorites for the week!

  5. Zinnia is a striking young lady. You are right about her eyes. They are so deep and tell such a story.
