The theme that I set for today’s photo challenge is PROFILE meaning a side-view, a silhouette, a figure, a contour.

The word was introduced into English language in the mid 17th century from obsolete Italian profilo from profilare, from pro- ‘forth’ + filare ‘to spin’, formerly ‘draw a line’.

              • Et oui, on commence à avoir mal un peu partout. Moi, c’est le dos. Petit-fils. Il est trop drôle. 8 mois et il rigole tout le temps. 🙂


    • Thank you, Jo. It’s better when I give it enough rest, but work is taking its toll, and my use of computer and gadgets in my free time has to pay the price.
