TIAA #40: “Silhouette Solace”

Tosin’s Images & Anecdotes (TIAA) is my self-assigned photography challenge of 2022. The immediate objective is to select one image from my inventory (a cityscape, landscape, portrait, oddity, etc.) each week and write something about it. This “something” could be the story behind the photo, a triggered memory in relation to the photo, or simply a reaction or reflection based on the subject matter featured. The long-term objective is to encourage myself to add more content to “La Vue Atypique”, which celebrates its first decade in publication this year.

What can I say about the photograph above?

This image was captured on Deception Pass Bridge that connects Whidbey Island and Fidalgo Island in Washington State, USA. Deception Pass is about 70 miles (113 km) north of Seattle and 32 miles (52 km) due east of Victoria, the provincial capital of British Columbia, situated at the southeastern tip of Vancouver Island, Canada.

The silhouetted figure in this photo (who was also trying to compose a photograph) was essentially looking directly at Canada located on the other side of the Strait of Juan de Fuca.

I’m certain that I photographed this moment on account of the spellbinding sunset gracing the natural landscape. It was rather stunning.

Here’s a map of a portion of the Puget Sound region. The red circle is where the Deception Pass Bridge is located.
The thin black line in the upper left section of the map is the observed border between Canada and America.
