Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhoutte

19 Oct

I had what might be termed a silhouette figure in 1982:

Now I have more of a she who ate* figure:

*You really need a northern British accent to get that joke: she who et 

The Daily Post tells us:

In photography, often we achieve that effect by putting light behind the object whose silhouette we want to capture, effectively darkening out the features of the subject instead of highlighting them.

I suspect if my 2012 self stood in front of my 1982 self* I’d be darkening out all my features several times over.

*Hey!  I’ve seen Star Trek – time travel will be possible one day and when it is, I’ll come back and do this and prove it to you.

    Ha, waiting for proof.

    Okay somebody ran off with your smile. When I see your Gravator around and about or here in the header I auto-shift to smiling myself regardless of my mood. Regardless how people see us, if your smiling the whole world smiles back -unless they are a Cuban police officer, you cannot get them to smile as I have tried.

        Yes last commenter and I got together in advance and planed it, to heighten the ‘niceness’. Effective don’t you think?

    You have a lovely, cuddly silhouette. I think there would be few of us over the age of 30 whose frame would not obliterate earlier versions!

    I like what you did with the first picture, the graininess is really cool. You look very cool and elegant in the second one. Both silhouettes are to be admired because they are both Tilly!

    you are truly beautiful the way you are now, we all once looked like ‘Twiggy” (are you to young for her?) anyway you have obtained character , wisdom and humor along the way so to heck with the silhoutte, it’s just a shadow of itself. God bless

    The second photo looks like you were about to attend an interview. It is unusual to see the warm hearted Tilly without a smile.

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
