I was digging through my archive wondering what I was going to post today as I'm not ready with the caterpillar shots yet, which aren't that great anyways, and I stumbled upon some I shot of this bridge awhile back and forgot to post.

A simple silhouette to begin the week. As many of you probably know from your own photoblogs, Sunday is a very low, if not the lowest traffic day of the week. I often wonder if I should not post on the weekend or at least on Sunday, but then remember that my most commented photo to date was a Sunday post, and for good reason; I wanted to get it out of the way before anybody saw my feable attempt at an artistic self-portrait. It was a clever, yet still feable attempt at a self-portrait that really got more attention than it deserved.

More very minor changes to the design (copyright/footer), and more on the way (comment page).

I like this a lot. Strong silhouette with lovely smooth and warm tones that haven't been over saturated.

Very nice! I like how the color changes from the horizon to the sky. It captured the feel of a warm sunset wonderfully!

Nice strong composition, which appeals to me very much. Goes very well with my coffee :) I know what you mean about the weekend traffic. I decided myself to not worry very much about posting on the weekends, although I often post very last Friday and on Sunday evening. 5 good shots a week is hard enough. BTW, I see why the most-commented shot was popular. Excellent self-portrait-one of the best I've seen.

This feels like the West. I think your silhouettes are among the very best I've seen. This is rich with warmth and character. Not surprisingly, another excellent effort!
