The Daily Post asks us to photograph objects in silhouette:
Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning yourself (or your subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details, but the effect varies from picture to picture.

And I can’t resist this one, taken in Palm Desert, last winter.
Another from Palm Desert. The credit for this one belongs to my husband, April 2013.
