silhouette inspiration

Last month I shared 7 Tips for taking silhouette pictures. I also issued a challenge and invited you to submit your silhouette photos so that we could share our favorites here on my blog.

Thank you for sharing with us! I could look at these all day. I love seeing you play with your cameras, experiment with something new, and document those you love through the lens. I’m going to let the pictures speak for themselves now.

The following are my 21 personal favorites from all those that were sent to us. There was no way I could narrow down to 5 or 10. In fact, I couldn’t even stick with a nice even number like 20! Enjoy.
