Looking for meanings in words, images and sounds
This is my response to Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette
Thanks Max. I don’t like this photo that much. I hate the top that is cut, and the smog in the air, and then there are spots cause of dust particles on my camera sensor that I could not clone out. I posted it as I really like that church (almost impossible to photograph it cause of the narrow street and cars that line it), and I feel confident to post some lesser work 😀 – it builds character 😀
It’s a shame that the top is cut, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices in order to get the shot. It’s not a huge cut, so it’s not bothering me as a viewer. I didn’t notice the dust particles before you mentioned them and I started looking, so that’s nothing to worry about 🙂 This photo is not “lesser work” at all and it fits perfectly to the theme on the weekly photo challenge.
That’s comforting.. I appreciate your honest views 🙂 Takk
Lesser work? Give me a break! You are one of those who are just too hard on themselves- but then I am starting to become that way, too! I didn’t even notice the cut off spire or the dust spots- though I guarantee if this had been my image I would have noticed them right away and then, like you, would have had to make a decision whether to post or not. But sometimes you have to call on that inner character of yours and post the image with all it’s offending faults because the sum is worth it. And this is definitely worth it!
😀 🙂 You know how to make me laugh, Emilio. Bless you 🙂
Gorgeous colours in the sky. And you always choose great accompanying music Paula
Thank you, sweet Debbie. They are fabricated – act of a desperate person 😉 Have a great weekend, girl!
Perfect for the challenge, Paula! 🙂
Thank you very much, Linda. I would have loved to show something more original and less seen like Cardinal. Well some other time 😉
This is beautiful Paula. Where was it taken?
That church is really beautiful, but there are almost no pics of it. It is in my beautiful Zagreb 🙂
How fabulous to have it in your own backyard!
15 minutes walk from me to be precise 😀
Purity and simplicity in this silhouette, Paula. Makes me want to return to beautiful Zagreb. And to achieve such beauty and simplicity in photos I take.
🙂 how do you manage to always make me feel better about things I post 🙂 How does it feel to be back home, Meg?
Can you make me feel better about that? I’m not real happy, to tell the truth. I’ve mainly slept for four days, and my world here looks parched.
Love these colours, Paula! I promised myself just a swift look at the challenge but there are some real beauties this week 🙂
I think you should rest and dream about Paris instead 😀 Thank you xx
I love the lines and the feeling the colors convey.
Thank you 🙂
Absolutely love this capture!
Luce , profilo e prospettiva mi incantano….
🙂 I have started studying Italian again. Maybe I will be able to write you in Italian without errors soon ;). Grazie mia cara.

And a ripper it is, Paula of the ageless face … I have just realized that your putting those ‘non-challenge’ icons in your sidebar is the sensible way to go; and as I’m about to post to one, I shall begin by doing the same ! 🙂
Thank you, M-R 🙂
great shot and mood
Thanks, Becca 🙂
I like the perspective Paula. And the colours despite the smog. One thing missing though – the tiny silhouette of a man on the roof would have been perfect. 🙂
Really lovely music too.
😀 that would make it complete, but all this time I have been looking at that church I have never seen anyone on top 😀
“Simple” and beautiful – like our norwegian friend so I didn’t notice the “missing” top before I read your text – what do this tell us, probably that norwegian and danish men don’t start at the top when they want a look… 😀 😀 😀
😆 😆 and I thought you were always looking at eyes first 😉 😀
Here I missed the eyes… 😀
very powerful photo
🙂 Nice catching up with you, Suzanne.

Excellent shot Paula! Just love it! 😀
♥ More Hugs ♥
very kewl 🙂
Thank you 😀
What I love about this is that, although it shows man-made structures, they are nevertheless organic in shape – that is the the outlines have that same symmetry-with-freedom, that you might get in an individual leaf.
good reminder above – nice photo, glad I visited…after taking the shot I used, I almost, almost, stopped to take a shot of a church spire, but didn’t. Yours turned out much better. Have a wonderful week.
Thank you very much. Have a great one yourself!
Love the golden tones in this Paula! I shouldn’t worry at all about the top, I get the impression the spire goes on forever. Can’t see any dust particles but then I have a grotty screen at the moment.
Thank you so much. I hope you’ll replace your grotty screen soon 🙂
To a lay person like me it looks lovely! Perhaps not as stunning as your usual work, but still very beautiful 🙂
Music to my ears 🙂 Thank you, Madhu 🙂

I had a feeling that you’d take advantage of the classical architecture in your area for this non-challenge.
It seems that you know me well Allan 🙂 Thank you
