Erica, at WordPress, gives us the task to show anonymity, a face in the crowd – referring to the days when she was too afraid to ask people for a photo. I am still there…but on my way to overcome it. I still take photos from behind though, or with a long lens, if I am not in the mood for asking.
This series, taken some years ago on the beach( in a warmer country than mine) shows how well we can express ourselves – even in the anonymity of silhouettes.
…..how he expresses himself…

Must be waving to the ship, nice 🙂
I only ask for permission if I enter a shop or similar. Once I was denied, in a door shop. Too bad, door shop! I could show your doors to the world. Outside I rarely take a photo of a person intentionally, but they keep walking in my frame. You might have seen my Siena photos for this challenge. I have never asked a random stranger in the street if I may take their photo.
I find it difficult to ask too.

Loved your story approach this week Leya
I am glad you did! Thank you!
A story in silhouette.
Excellent. I had to laugh a little about the man’s expressive stand. Your little series of images goes to show that not all photos of people have to be taken close up.
Thank you, Otto. Glad you liked it, and yes – I agree.
And – expressiveness does not have to be very vivid…

Thank you so much!
…or doesn’t express himself, latterly. Great silhouette slideshow, like a silent movie!!
Thank you, Sue – I loved watching them as the ship was sailing by. As you can see the header picture is number two in line.
