A Word A Week Challenge: Silhouette

Are there words in your life where you remember exactly when and how you learned the meaning of them?

Silhouette is actually one of them for me.  It used to be a yogurt brand, is it still? After I went full-on lactose intolerant, I avoided that aisle because not being able to eat yogurt is depressing for me.  Still, thats not how I learned the meaning, of course. I learned it from a movie! Any idea which one? Mary Poppins! When Bert goes, “I’d recognize that silhouette anywhere” when Mary Poppins shadow shows up in one of the chalk painting frames.

Thats what I think of when I hear that word: Shadows on the ground!

Excuse that finger in the frame.  It was my first weekend with a smart phone.  What can I say? Inexperience….Now I do it less often 😉

Honestly, I like taking pictures of my silhouette than my physical self sometimes.  At times, it makes me look so slim and slender, not to mention tall.  My 5’4 height challenge does have its benefits (in Hong Kong) but not here….especially when I’m at a standing concert!

Although it did allow me to capture silhouettes of the crowd in front of me, who are as hyped up as I am!  Just like at the concert this week! I’m working on a post for it.  Its just a lot of pictures to shift through 🙂
