Welcome to another edition of Photo Friday.

camera photo friday

The objective is to post your own images, based on a prompt provided by the Photo Friday staff.



Solitude can be a time to enjoy some peace and quiet, to revel in one’s own thoughts, but sometimes, it can also be lonely and sad.

    Lovely photos. Nothing like an empty winding road stretching out in front of you to get that lonely feeling. Beautiful lake and mountains photo. Aw, what a cute pooch waiting for someone to come join him.

    Sometimes I crave solitude and don’t feel lonely. Love time to myself. Other times I do get lonely and want people around. Strange how I have those two sides to my character. Being an introvert is like that, I guess.

  8. Great photos. I love solitude and alone, but am very rarely lonely … as long as the sun is shining. Gray skies like your road photo make me grateful I have Hub in the car with me!

  9. Sweet. Love the doggie!

    The water in Cachuma Lake is so blue it’s almost unreal. Would love to visit one day.

    I went to Cachuma Lake as a kid being born and raised in the Central Valley! The adorably cute kid does look lonely 🙁 But, I know his/her mommy/daddy didn’t let that last long 🙂

    • HI Mike; I didn’t know you were a native Californian. 🙂 Cachuma Lake was a stop on my solitary road trip from San Diego to Santa Maria. I was was driving up to visit a friend and loved the whole experience. Ventura Highway, baby! 😀 One day, hubby and I want to fly to San Francisco, then drive ALL the way down. Such spectacular scenery. Little Murphy wasn’t alone for long, but I thought the expression on his face was comical. Thanks for visiting and I hope you and Phoenix have a fabulous weekend.
