Welcome to the Saturday Silhouettes meme! This is a weekly meme that looks at SILHOUETTES in photography.
SILHOUETTE |ˌsɪlʊˈɛt| noun: The dark shape and outline of someone or something visible in restricted light against a brighter background.
ORIGIN - late 18th century: Named (although the reason remains uncertain) after Étienne de Silhouette (1709–67), French author and politician.
This is a "reverse silhouette" of winter trees whose bare branches are illuminated by a sodium street light, while in the dark night background are the distant lights of the Melbourne City skyline. The photo was taken on Northcote Hill, about 5 km North fo the City centre.
