Throughout the progression of this photo project, I realize when I'm at a loss for an interesting picture of something, I'll just end up using myself as the subject.  It helps me practice techniques photographing people and forces me to get creative with camera placement since I'm not behind the viewfinder.  I used my tripod for this photo and got to know it's swivel capabilities and leg extenders very well.  

To be honest, I'm not fond of the lamp pole in the background but this lamp provided the best spotlight.  I really like silhouettes because of their simplicity.  It's amazing how an outline can draw out a figure so familiar.  This is why I love the Live Inspired Positively Green card collection.
