My Town Friday Shoot Out: Silhouettes

For this week's My Town Shoot Out, I went to the archives. The theme of the week is silhouettes. Who knew I had done this before...and actually had a few good ones to boot!!


This picture is from my inlaw's family cottage this past 4th of July. That is Lake Erie in the photo.



Our home is very near an Air National Guard Base. This picture, although I wish it was better cropped, was taken this past August at the air show.


This picture is of my youngest son at the Detroit Zoo. He'd positioned himself in a window that looks into the seal aquarium.

Ellise, these are all amazing shots. I really like the one of your son. It is so awesome. I love his silhouette against the blue of the aquarium. I also really like the bridge. This is a very good shoot out.

Very cool shots. As much as I love sunset photos, I think the shot of your son is very, very special.

I like all of them - if I had to choose would go for the dock as number one - but thank goodness I don't have to choose can just like them all.

The shot of your son is a real keeper, I'm sure you'll treasure that for years to come.

But the jets and then your son is so cute, we just went to the Atlanta Aquarium on Friday and I got some good shots of my GRAND~daughters. Lots of fun.

I loved each one of your shots...and congrads on your last shot getting noticed on FSO's website...to me, it is a great visual for a child's curiosity of the world around us. Oh, that we could be swept up in the moment, crawl up nice and close, and take it all in...
