Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

The wordpress weekly photo challenge is Silhouette.  When I hear that word I think of the little black paper cut- outs of children’s profiles mounted in a black oval frame.  They used to be popular and hanging in homes.  But yesterday I was photographing this display of bras created for October- Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

The wind was brisk and it started to rain.  The bras hung on a metal tree sculpture at American Eagle campus on the South Side, Pittsburgh, were blowing like flags.  This photo is unretouched and is in color but looks black and white without any adjustments.

Last year there were thousands of bras strung across the adjacent Hot Metal Bridge which I posted.

A reminder to schedule a an overdue mammogram.

A time to think of all of those who battle this disease, family and friends we know and love.

And a snippet of video to show the wind and rain effect on the scene…
