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.

20 thoughts on “SOLITUDE – PHOTO FRIDAY

    1. Hi Suzy; Glad you liked the photos. 🙂 Cachuma Lake was a stop on my solitary road trip up the California coast. Gorgeous scenery all along there. Thanks for visiting.

    1. Hi Kathy; Yes, I think that one really conveys “solitude” the most. Glad you enjoyed the photos and thanks for visiting. 🙂

  1. 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.

    1. Hi Cathy; I think most of us have both sides, to varying degrees and consider myself an “extroverted introvert”. 🙂 As an only child I learned to enjoy my own company early in life but love to socialize as well. Glad you enjoyed the photos. Thanks for visiting and have a great week!

  2. 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!

    1. I feel the same way, Sammy. 🙂 Hubby was actually driving, while I took the photo. Typical Fall weather in Northern Ontario. Cheers!

    1. That was such a spectacular view, I just had to stop and take some photos. 🙂 This was taken during my solitary road trip from San Diego to Santa Maria, where I got to meet our very own ♥Mom♥, Chi Chi. Thanks for dropping in and have a good weekend.

  3. 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 🙂

    1. 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.
