A recent road trip through the Western United States has rekindled my appreciation for nomadic living solutions.  This well-engineered piece of thin fabric was all it took to create a sense of home for my weary soul.

I encountered this photo hanging on an old brick wall in Rapid City, SD. 
I was reminded to appreciate everything that I have.

silhouette soliloquy

How can I verbalize one of my favorite random photos…maybe I’ll get to the root of silhouettes?  Or is it contre-jour?  French for “against daylight,” contre-jour photographs often render the central object as a darker silhouette surrounded by a soft, halo-esque light…

In summer 2011 I visited Rodanthe, NC and got to experience this unique 1966 beach house, which was listed for sale. I am not the new proud owner of this time-capsule of modern design, but I still return to Norman Jaffe’s architecture and life story for inspiration: http://www.normanjaffe.com/

Brian’s observations are to be:

1:  Readily perceived by the senses, especially sight
2:  Easily understood or recognized by the mind; obvious
3:  Inspiring and therefore worth sharing with others
4:  Communicated with maximum imagery and minimal language
