For the WordPress photo challenge this week, we are invited to share a picture which to us means “solitary.”
Now, those of you who know me, would be very surprised indeed if I did a post containing one solitary photo, so here are just a few for the theme.
High on a rooftop somewhere between Machu Picchu and Cuzco in Peru, we spotted this ceramic bull sitting in complete solitude. These bulls, known as ‘Turitos’, are placed on the roofs of houses, to represent happiness, wealth and fertility. Sometimes there is more than one Torito, together with other symbols such as crosses and pots of flowers.
Here is a woman fruit-seller making her solitary way up this steep set of steps in Bali. I think she sensed that we were watching her, because she turned and looked at us.
A Hindu statue sits in solitary silence on the edge of one of Bangkok’s canals.
Here at this lovely resort in Charleston, South Carolina, you can have the whole beach to yourself if you desire solitude. Just pull up a deck chair.
Today, I didn’t have too much solitude, because I was out looking for people to “shoot” for Jake’s Sunday Post theme, which I have still to do. (No people were harmed during the shootings though.)
