World of silhouettes…

Mars Maritime Garden

Mar’s maritime garden

Silhouettes are those shapes whose forms we can intuit just by their borders… inside them there is a plain mystery with details, colors and stories hide from us.

Perhaps that is the fascination with silhouettes, in our hope that nothing is empty or meaningless they invite us to create stories to explain them.

Very often silhouettes belong to the kingdoms of duks and dawn, but not always…

Of course with the technology of current cameras we can illuminate what seems a pure and total shadow; but a world without mystery would lose so many beauty as we fill the shadows with our dreams…

  1. things reduced to a line ! There is a series of Italian cartoons, la linea, drawn by Osvaldo Cavandoli, based on the silhouette of a character, which is just gorgeous in its simplicity and the expression of emotions. Have a funny day, Francis !

    1. Thank you Gilles for the data :O Formidable work, with a line his characters that look so free and flexible, and quite expressive. Funny day for you as well Gilles.

  2. I like silhouettes too. They’re always moody and mysterious and often very beautiful. In fact, the only thing I don’t like about them is trying to spell the word. (I cut and paste the one on this comment just to be sure.) :)

    1. Oh! But English is not my native language kind sir. You are copy pasting from a very mischievous source! : )
      (Guessing you do it from me I mean)

  3. Each picture, Francis, I mean.. such beauty, the very first one really looks like a dream. : ) Also, the Campina (sorry, I can’t seem to find a special ..n for it) ..lovely little clouds. From beyond the shadows and the silhouettes, so much light and color.. maybe also from our beautiful dreams. ^_^

    1. I can give it to you ^^ ———-> ñ and Ñ to copy and paste.
      The colors are more intense when they are framed by shadows ^-^ I reduced the exposure to get most of those silhouettes. : )

      1. Thank you, Francis ^^ Yes, the colors in your photos are always special, they have that warmth.. soft and glossy to the eye. I just love the turquoise, for instance. ^_^
