The theme for this weeks photo challenge is solitude. It can be interpreted in any way you choose, but I didn’t have any ideas. My photos do show two people who couldn’t be more different though.
This soldier was standing guard at the Ataturk Mausoleum, Istanbul. He was as still as a statue, even when I stood beside him. It must be a very strange thing to do, just standing all day without moving a muscle, a kind of internal solitude and yet remaining alert. He may still be there.
This elderly lady, was probably glad of a place to sit and relax. It was a warm day, but she’d found her shady spot and seemed quite content in her solitude. There will be lots of photos of solitude at the Daily Post, pop over and visit or join in.
