I’m getting the hang of these photo challenges. This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge has the theme “Solitude”. And I can once again match that with fun of my Street Photography photographs. Well, “street” is relative, as this image was taken inside a church in Italy. For me this is a perfect representation of solitude.
For me solitude is nothing negative. I don’t mind being alone at times. I’m alone a lot when traveling on business, at least while in the hotel in the evenings. But I’m at peace with that. Those evenings I spend with a good book or with photography. There are always photos I need to work on, there are blogs to read or blogposts to write. Sometimes I grab my cam and head out on the hunt for some new images. Perhaps I’m at ease when alone because I have a family and friends I can return to.
I acknowledge there are many that have no one to turn to. And those might hate being alone.
Photo taken with my Olympus PEN-F at 1/20 sec @ f/5.4 and ISO 1600. Lens was the mZuiko 14-150mm f/4.0-5.6 Travel Zoom. Monochrome conversion in Lightroom CC.
Have a great weekend!
