There seems to be a very strong recurring theme in the majority of this week’s submissions for ANIMAL. I didn’t get the weekly reminder out this week because I was sick most of last week and sickness always turns into laziness for me.
But you don’t want to listen to me talk all tommyrot about trends. You just want to see the submissions:
I might have to make a no cat rule for next cycle’s ANIMAL theme.
But enough dwelling on the past. Time to look to the future. We are all interested in the future, for that is where you and I are going to spend the rest of our lives. And remember my friend, future events such as these will affect you in the future! This week’s theme:
But what is a SILHOUETTE! How about this definition:
the dark shape and outline of someone or something visible against a lighter background, especially in dim light.
Seems like a solid definition to me. You might not need to worry about the dim light part so much. It would help, but definitely backlight something, so you can only see the outline of your subject. Should be interesting! Good luck!
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 RULES DIVISION
1. The picture has to be taken the week of the theme. This isn’t a curate your pictures challenge. This is a get your butt off the couch (my personal experience) and put your camera in your hands challenge. Don’t send me a picture of you next to the Eiffel Tower, when I know you were in Iowa all week. I will point out that I have let that slide some in the past. I will not in the future. Since it is literally about the only rule.
2. Your submission needs to be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11 AM on the Monday of the challenge. It should be pointed out that this blog auto-publishes at 12:01 on Mondays. So it wouldn’t hurt to get your picture in earlier.
That is it, them’s the rules.
A MESSAGE FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHY 139 SHAMELESS SELF-PROMOTION DIVISION
Nothing new to report. I’ll try to do better next week.

That’s all I got for today, so if the good Lord’s willin’ and the creek don’t rise, we will commune right here again next Monday. Hopefully it will be a very shadowy Monday!
