Friday shoot out: Silhouettes





Assignment - October 9 - SILHOUETTES

The first photo was taken from the floor shooting up the glass ceiling of the Nanyang Executive centre in NTU in Singapore.

In a Chinese kitchen, a wok, like a cleaver is all you need to stirfry, stew, braise and boil soup.

For a laugh, my wok is not made in China, but in Italy. May be Marco Polo borrowed the idea, like the way it's been disputed that he borrowed the idea of noodles and called it their own spaghetti,

Palm trees are easy to draw, often I just draw coconut trees swaying in the sea breeze. Little huts of attap hatch. So idealic, until the dreadful word tsunami robs me of my tranquil setting.

Lovely silhouette!

Kerry said...

The word "tsunami" has been particularly dreadful lately. Be well!

The flamelike background of the wok is perfect!

I like the second photo more. You have also a hand of an artist. Keep it up!

Ann, these are great. My favorite one is the wok. It is lovely. I would hang it on the wall in my ktichen.

Chef E said...

No words can describe what a beautiful job you have done! Every time we have a new assignment I am amazed...this was hard for me...

Love the shot of the wok! I adore my wok, but have been coveting a larger one at a new restaurant supply store in town.

Pauline said...

I agree, that wok shot is terrific. Like the palm trees, too!

Doreen said...

all wonderful shots Ann!!

Barry said...

Those are very beautiful photos, Ann.

It's been disputed that Marco Polo brought noodles back to Italy from China.

Darn, that's something I'd always believed.

Carrie said...

I live in a tsunami zone as well...hope all is well in your area.

Your photos are great - I really like the wok shot. Funny that it is made in Italy!

Denise said...

glass ceiling is my favorite. nice shots!

Ellisa said...

Love the glass ceiling. It's a great graphic!

NanU said...

Nice one, Ann. My favorite is the wok in the kitchen.

I like the photo of the 'italian' wok - the states also have several kinds of woks - all made in China because I think everything you buy in the States is made in China, I've not seen woks in Brasil - course I don't shop in high class / high cost stores so maybe I have just missed them here - brought my own - I love to make stir fry. great shots for this week's FSO

Rebecca said...

Oooh I like that last one, the circles make it interesting.

SOL said...

I love that second shot!!

A Scattering said...

These are great - I never would have guessed the wok, I thought it was an exotic fountain. Just goes to show how our eyes can fool us.

Jen said...

Ann, these are fantastic!

Scriptor Senex said...
