One Valentines Day years ago
I gave my wife a necklace with a “key to my heart”, matching earrings were included.

That picture is kind of scary! It looks like a mask when you can't see the eyes.
You are right, the original picture was so backlit that you had to work to get the details in the face. It was easier to go the other way and turn it into B&W. This is the picture the other way. I didn’t save the original picture. It is still on the camera

Sentimental value: the cross my grandparents gifted me when I was baptized and my great grandfather's watch. Both sitting on my grandfather's desk; all of which I hope to pass onto my kids...

Week 34: Silhouette
Didn't think about this until I was out walking today (finally caught up with the house painting and weeding and garden and testing ideas for storing zuchinni, etc.) So, here are my thoughts on "Silhouette" - I'm glad to see it spelled so I know I spell it correctly. Now for the images I thought of:

Can a silhouette be relative? Subject darker than the background?

Ok, is there a 'technical' name for such images; or should we come up with something here? Meanwhile, here's a more standard interpretation of a silhouette (if I write it 100 times I should know how to spell 'silhouette' tomorrow; right?)

Is the rider better centered or offset?

So, why can't a silhouette just be relative value difference?? And is it better to Slice the zuchinni, fry it with spices, and THEN dry it into chips? Or should I dry it first and then fry it with spices when I'm about to use it mid-winter?

I wondered the same thing so I looked it up. I think the second definition describes something different than an all black figure or outline, but you wouldn't want too much detail. "the outline or general shape of something".

1. a two-dimensional representation of the outline of an object, as a cutout or configurational drawing, uniformly filled in with black, especially a black-paper, miniature cutout of the outlines of a person's face in profile.

2. the outline or general shape of something: the slim silhouette of a skyscraper.

3. a dark image outlined against a lighter background.

Yes, got it. But what to do with all this zuchinni? Maybe I should do a silhouette (Hey! I spelled that without looking!) of zuchinni. Hmmm, that's a thought. So.....using definition 3, if I reduce the brightness of the flower, but leave the detail, maybe it would qualify?
And is it "Dry, then Fry." or "Fry, then Dry."?? Hungry minds want to know.

I believe there is only one "n" in zucchini. :whistling:

No fair! I already learned a new word today!! Ok, one n and 2 c's, one 'n' and 2 c's, one en and 2 seas, one...
Does that mean "Fry, then dry" then; or does that mean "Dry, then fry."?? Or should I just try to pickle the whole lot? My son thinks we'd get really tired of pickled zucchini (sp!!), I also have a bunch freezing; but drying seems like it would take the least amount of room and can be stored anywhere.
Conundrum (sp?).

Funny you should say that. I'll post up my first offering later.

And you're overthinking the whole thing. What was that old Outback commercial? "No Rules, just Right!"

I hear you loud and clear. You're saying mail the zucchini to you. No worries; I just need an address.
This is for Walt. Thelma Sander squash...or...hot air balloon? And no on the zucchini, I'm pulling most of my plants tomorrow, we have enough.

I immediately saw the squash. I'm donating the rest of mine to the local food kitchen. Forget long-term storage, zucchini is cheap, even in winter. But i'd still like to find a method of preservation that works for me. Easy and inexpensive. Just dried 3 zucchini and then deep fried them into chips. About 2 mouthfuls. Nix that. Freezer is almost full, might end up getting a separate freezer - I could store lots of stuff in it; film, chemicals, meat, veggies, more film, more dektol... ice cream...etc...

Next year, remind me again, only ONE zucchini plant. Only ONE. Not 6.

Ok, so last day to post for last week's assignment (Silhouette), and this is what was in my head as I awoke. Enjoy!

And I have decided to shred and freeze more of the zucchini; and donate the rest to the local soup kitchen run by Catholic Charities. :)
