Ailsa’s Travel Theme photo challenge this week on Where’s my backpack at http://wheresmybackpack.com/2012/08/24/silhouette/  is Silhouette.  Although these two images are not completely in silhouette, I thought they were close enough to qualify for the subject.

The picture on the left was taken very early in the morning at the Eyes to the Skies Festival in Lisle, Illinois. It was eerily quiet; the Ferris wheel empty and the grounds deserted.

The picture on the right was taken as the sun was setting at Navy Pier in Chicago. A totally different atmosphere here; music playing, laughter and shrieks of delight from the kids on both the carousel and the Ferris wheel.
