I've been a mess lately, and I really do apologize. Some of you may know that I'm looking for a position as an English teacher for the fall, and it's not going well. So I've been quite...unhappy...the last several weeks. I'm really sorry to have been flaking out on the comm. I hope that you're all still with us, and maybe some new faces will join in.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
All your entries must conform to the theme. At least one must conform also to one of the interpretations.CHALLENGEprofileThis doesn't necessarily apply to a character's face. You can use just a body shot, if the camera angle is from the side. It must be a profile shot, however, not three-quarters or behind.INTERPRETATIONSWord: silhouetteAnd overhead the curlews cry,
Where through the dusky upland grass
The young brown-throated reapers pass,
Like silhouettes against the sky.
You may use the word "silhouette" on your icon, any variation, any definition. You may use phrases that allude to silhouettes or profiles, but if it's not clear how the icon refers to silhouettes, please explain in your submission comment.
