Silhouette

I finally got the last month’s photos downloaded from the camera – AND I got caught up on my Shutter Sister’s post reading, too!  A few days ago, the assignment was to share a photo that surprised you.  As soon as the pictures came off the camera, I knew this was the shot to use.

This summer, I’ve started taking the camera out of the “auto” mode and experimenting with manual aperture and shutter settings.  I am slowly – slowly – learning and every so often, I actually take a picture that takes my breath away.

It was a relaxing night at Blossom with gorgeous sunset light and a cooperative, contemplative Emily.  She’s so beautiful and this silhouette really captures her introspective nature.
