I ♥ Faces - Silhouettes!

This week at I ♥ Faces it is Silhouettes week. I had not ever taken a silhouette before, so I had some fun trying this evening! It was a great chance for me to learn with some of my settings (and my timer.) I had a hard time trying to decide if this should be black and white or not, but I eventually chose the color because I liked the warmth. Around 6 in the evening, the sun comes shining through Noah's nursery window, so I thought this would be a good spot. Hope did not want to be my subject, so Noah and I had our own fun. And, as a bonus, this will be proof to Noah that I really was around during his childhood, even though I am not in many photos! See Noah, there I am, the dark shadowy figure... errr.
Your turn, go post your Silhouette photo! This week you have Tuesday and Wednesday to enter!
