Summer Silhouettes

by Carol


Summer night...





Is there anything that sets a summer mood more than a silhouette? In winter, we are tucked away from the darkness, near our fires or tucking in for sustenance. 




But those glorious summer evenings, when you cannot make yourself leave the porch; when you listen as the songbirds go to bed, and the crickets awaken.....




The breeze begins to get just a bit cooler - maybe you wrap a cardigan, or zip a sweatshirt jacket....




And the lightening bugs appear.  I long for the days of "the summer porch" - Oh to sleep outside, under that sunset!




            Or to "dance by the light of the moon!"





(A reminder to post your silhouettes in our gallery labeled for our monthly theme - "Silhouettes" .....)

Greetings from Venice! Your lovely silhouettes are such an inspiration! I'll be watching for opportunities to find some Venetian silhouettes over the next couple of days.

Oh, Carol, such amazing silhouette inspiration! You're right, in the summer we tend to be outside during this beautiful time of day. Looking forward to seeing everyone's silhouettes in the gallery and to taking some of my own!
