Missing

screen-shot-2017-03-01-at-9-52-18-pm

I saw this sign up in my neighborhood. It seems that someone’s mother and grandmother has gone missing.

I do hope they find her. I wonder what’s happened to her.

This week’s prompt is of a silhouette artist preparing to create some silhouettes. Thus I thought I’d see what silhouettes I could find.

The Library of Congress also has some paper silhouettes (i.e. not photos) such as these of Gerry Mulligan’s parents. (Mulligan was a jazz musician.)
