travel theme: silhouette

Friday, August 24:  Ailsa’s Travel Theme for this week is Silhouette.  She writes: It fascinates me how a silhouette; a two-dimensional outline of a person or object, can suggest a story just as clearly as if you could see the scene in its entirety. Perhaps it makes our imagination work overtime, trying to fill in the details we cannot see. I would love to see your interpretation of this theme, so if you would like to join in, create your own post, title it Travel Theme: Silhouette and put a link to Ailsa’s page (Where’s my backpack? Silhouette) in your post so others can find it easily.

Here’s my first silhouette, seen while driving home from Deep Creek Lake in western Maryland back home to northern Virginia.
