Dreamy

Dreamy is this week’s photo challenge from word press: we’d like to see an image that looks dreamy to you.

We were traveling on a cruise ship in 2009 from Aswan towards Luxor temple on the river Nile in Egypt. In the early morning hours, when I opened the drapes, I was pleasantly surprised by a scenery that looked dreamy to me.

Silhouette

Capture a silhouette.

Photography is all about experimenting with light, and then positioning yourself (or your subject) in the right spot to achieve a certain effect. One such effect is a silhouette, in which an outline of someone or something appears dark against a lighter background. Silhouettes can be very dramatic and resemble black shapes without any details, but the effect varies from picture to picture.

Here are some visual treats from Egypt.

“Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it's the answer to everything. To ''Why am I here?'' To uselessness. It's the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it's a cactus.” Enid Bagnold quotes (English Writer, 1889-1981)

I hope this flower inspires the best in you.
