Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary


Solitary is an interesting theme for a photo challenge. it something many people feel they are, and many are proud to be. I am in awe of people who find themselves good enough company to be alone for any period of time, since I have to be around people 24/7. I struggle with solitude, and I am aware how badly this reflects on my self-confidence.

I took this photo of a gull in Venice. he was sitting on this post, looking out onto the busy waters. Calm and content with his own company among the throng of people, reminding me that even when you are surrounded by lots of people, even then, you can still feel very much alone.

  1. It’s a wonderful thing to love your own company as well as the company of others. I encourage you to spend some time with yourself. The world is a big, beautiful and endlessly interesting place so don’t worry about being bored or lonely. Spending time alone has its own rewards and richness.

  2. I struggle with this thing called solitude too.. sometimes we have no choice though
