Shadows & Silhouettes

Sometimes, less visual information is better. Less function, more form.

Shadows and Silhouettes. I wonder if our eyes are relieved to occasionally be guided to the water like a tired horse.

In the late 1700's in France, cutouts were "invented" and all the rage as low-cost quick alternatives to painted bust portraits.

I find silhouettes refreshingly simple and clear, like a well-written haiku.

Shadows, on the other hand, feel altered and sneaky, leaving me feeling I'm not getting the straight story. Right?

 Me.

Me.

 Friendly people. Spooky shadows.
