Weekly Photo Challenge (solitary)

Word Press Weekly Photo Challenge Theme

This issue must certainly be found further out in the countryside
or are there signs too, within the cities – that makes one think of solitary
some sits perhaps between 2 chairs or choose both solutions
community and solitary.

Many people are lonely in cities
some have been deselected of the so-called community
others have chosen no to the community or parts of it
but still want to enjoy some of the community’s benefits.

Signs indicating this are enclosed gardens behind the houses
where not the most determined paparazzi can sneak in sexy photos
additional walls as a barrier to urban life
motorbike is presumably also a loner characters
shutters in the windows precisely angled
as can be observed from inside to outside, but not from the outside in.

Signs indicating the desire to soften the enclosed unit is (maybe) mailboxes, doorbells, street lights, fire hydrant and in particular the large common aerial which circulates signals to television, radio, mobile phones and similar.

urban solitary or not

  1. Well written, and a great shot!

    I have been told that you’re never really alone in a small village. The neighbors will always look after you. If you are looking for loneliness, you have to move out in the middle of a forest – or to a big city. 😉

      Thanks, appreciates… 😉

      Yeah small places such as tiny island and so the will keep an eye on your both because they are more curious and because they care about you – even people which not best friends actully care about neighbors are all right… 😉

      I’m born on a tiny danish island and remember it as more good than bad – but as youth when you woke up without remembering last night – ask everyone else – while you were sleept it was been common knowledge… ‘hahaha’

  4. Hi Ledrake, your post reminded me of a poem i read eons ago..-
    “I own a crevice stuffed with moss
    and a couch of lemming fur;
    I sit and listen to the music
    of water dripping on a distant stone.
    Or I sing to myself
    of stealth and loneliness
    No one comes to see me
    but I hear outside
    the scratching of claws,
    the warm, inquisitive breath …
    (from ‘The Hermitage’)” ……

    loved your write up 🙂

      Didn’t knew this poem, likes it
      thanks for sharring… 😉

      Sometimes we sit behind thick walls and imagine all the threats on the other side – and many times we do not know what is fantasy and reality – we react to suppositions instead of acting on knowledge – typically us humans… 😉

  5. I like the fragment:
    “…Signs indicating this are enclosed gardens behind the houses
    where not the most determined paparazzi can sneak in sexy photos
    additional walls as a barrier to urban life…”

      A lots of people are hiding behind high walls and when they moves out they using GPS systems to find exactly what they are looking for – maybe they are afraid to find what they aren’t looking for… ‘big smile’
