PhotoHunt 253: Silhouette

Silhouettes are very intriguing things.  They can say a lot about the subject, and then at the same time, nothing at all.  They almost demand a sort of viewer interaction that piques interest and causes a subtle questioning.  They can be very mysterious and seductive like a glamourous old hollywood detective film;  yet at the same time very innocent and straightforward, depending on what you, the viewer, are bringing to the table.  Though I had quite a few shots that technically satisfied this week's PhotoHunt assignment, this particular shot seemed to sum up the shadowy, sensual mystique that a great silhouette can evoke.  This silhouette is courtesy of one very cool hotel room window, looking out over Chinatown, that became even cooler at night with the lights out.
