Admire your capability to see lines and shapes. Do you visualize your images the way you process them? Or does the inspiration to interpret a scene this strike you after? Excellent seeing, nonetheless.

Excellent black & white beauty, Sharon. Looking back & going ahead ... alongside with Emily Dickinson quote this is a truly philosophical post. I could quote a hundred lyrics but I kust surrender to the pure beauty I found once more. Great composition! All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Love yours, the silhouettes of course - how they are drawn in the backlight - and above all this back of the magnificient Beast lying down so quietly in her black velvet panther-like attitude... Dreamy shot and nice quote to make the perfect duet again ~
