Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

This weeks photo challenge has been a tricky one for me; I had visions of photos of solitary people matched with this stupid inability to actually take them! I don´t know why; but I feel that if I take a picture of someone, even in a public place, that I´m somehow invading their space and privacy. I need to get over this, I truly do, as some of my favourite photos are of people. I love facial expressions, fine lines and wrinkles, eyes, posture, mannerisms, I love it all. To me a photo of a person is beautiful, always, as it captures so much more than just a moment; it captures a life story, especially in older people! So; basically what I´m trying to say is that this week the photo challenge really was a challenge for me, I found myself sifting through my countless albums and failed to come up with anything that truly grabbed my attention.

In the end I settled on a few different shots, five in total. I do like these shots but the quality isn´t the best! I hope you enjoy them, if I do manage to overcome my fear then I will post again during the week! So without further delay, here they are:

Theme one: People.

This was a shot taken in the Sierra Morena one cool and crisp morning last February.
Again, this shot was taken in the Sierra Morena, once the morning fog had lifted!

Theme two: Animals.

This image was taken at Córdoba Zoo.
Again, this was taken at Córdoba Zoo.

Theme three: Bikes.

Taken at the start of summer in Córdoba!


So that´s it, for now anyway! Hope you enjoyed my three interpretations of this weeks theme. If I manage to take some more shots, I shall post them during the week!

As always, thank you for reading,

Until the next time,

    1. Thank you Alexandria, delighted you liked them! I took them on my phone, a htc, and then used an application called Fotoroom to add the frames! I´m a little bit addicted to it, makes such a difference to every picture! Having a htc phone meant I couldn´t get instagram so I researched the next best thing and that was Fotoroom! I´m not sure if you can get it on a PC though, if not try snapseed it has the same features but it´s for PCs! Hope you had a great weekend! G 🙂


      1. Thanks a lot. I do use Apple but have not ventured into instagram. My daughter said I should never even go there or I will be gone forever! With the huge array of pics on my PC I’m hesitant to venture elsewhere. But I love to see what others have done.


  1. I’m not participating in the weekly photo challenge but if I were, for this one, I would have headed down to the local jail to get a picture of someone in solitary confinement. I’m thinking the jail guards would have said, “Uh, no.”……………lol


  2. Thanks Giana. Beautiful images. My favorie is the first. A look of peace, happiness and beautiful dreams at the same time. I’m like you, I feel guilty when taking other peoples faces, particularly strangers although they seem to give the most moving images. Yes, it’s like invading their private , unguarded moments. I too need to overcome this. Have a wonderful weekend.
