Silhouettes Of My Life

Silhouettes Of My Life

Silhouettes are not just forms to marvel but are a part of the journey we take everyday. Each holds a story. Each one led to a path that made us discover ourselves and the people we share our life with.

Some silhouettes opens our world for adventure, discovery and travel.

Some silhouettes taught us how to love and cherish the people who gave us their hearts unconditionally. 

Other silhouettes gave us a reason to be happy and be appreciative of the simple blessings we receive everyday.

Some silhouettes guided us to the right path learning priceless life lessons along the way.

Other silhouettes gave us courage to overcome fear, hardship and storms. 

Other silhouettes inspired our faith and helped us find our way home.

These are just but a few of the many silhouettes of my life.  Each one made me realize how lucky I am to be alive. Each one taught me that every journey no matter how difficult is worth every sacrifice.

What does a silhouette means to you? Whose silhouette do you wish to celebrate and remember today?

Thank you for being a part of this week’s photo challenge called “Silhouette.” May it help you remember the silhouettes of the many people who touched your life.

  8. The first image is my favorite, especially the way you’ve captured the position of his right foot, which is tentative and childlike.

    You know where I have the most curiosity about life stories? In a cemetery, especially an old one in an isolated area. I read the markers (if legible) and create my own story for the life that is represented there. Your silhouettes are intriguing.

    Silhouettes are, in my opinion, the humble beauty. There are abstract photos, stunning landscapes, and then of course people shots — all of which contain color and vibrancy; but there is something about the secrecy of the light and the dark of a silhouette, and the simplicity of it all coming together that moves me.

    These are gorgeous, thank you for sharing them!

    A lovely post with some deep philosophical thoughts about a theme that might seem quite simple. And the photographs are fantastic as always. The first one is probably my favourite. There is something special about your son’s fascination about the air plane and the activity outside.
