What do you think about when the word solitude is mentioned? For some, it can mean getting some valuable time to spend alone doing the crossword, to read or write, or maybe going for a walk on your own and taking in the sights and sounds of life. For others, it can have the opposite effect.
I took this photo a few weeks ago while having a cup of coffee. It was a beautiful day yet a chilly East wind meant that many chose to sit inside the cafe so they could consume their refreshments with some warmth.
All the tables were empty apart from the one I was sitting at and the one you can see the man sitting at in the photo. He was not only taking in the view but looked as if the solitude he found himself in was doing him the world of good.
This week take a photo of what solitude means to you. Maybe it’s a lone figure walking along an empty beach or somebody taking a well-deserved rest on their own. Maybe it’s not a person but something that stands all on its own without anything else nearby?
Want to join the fun? Here’s what you need to do.
1. Take or choose a photo that you’ve taken which, for you, shows Solitude.
2. Create a new post on your blog entitled “Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20 – “Solitude”
3. Add the photo(s) you have taken to the post and tell us a little about what you are showing.
4. Create a pingback to this post or leave a link to your post in the comments section below so that other participants can view the post.

Last week’s challenge got you all producing some wonderful photos of Gaps. We had some sneaky glimpses into gaps from all around the world and I’ve chosen the following five entries to showcase.
Elizabeth, at Tea and Paper, showed us a startling gap of something that was about to eat an unsuspecting person taking a selfie. Shocking? No, it gave me a right laugh.
Srivi, at The Piscean Me, showed us a couple of photos one of which was of a gap at the very top of a building. It looks out on a great view and was perfect for the challenge.
Cathy, at Between The Lines, shared a photo she took while on a visit to Boston in the USA. It’s a striking photo because of the contrast between the buildings either side of the gap and the one that sits in the gap.
Terri, at Perspectives On…, was looking down when she took her photo for the challenge. The colour alone in this photo is amazing.
Carol, at Light Words, was one of the photographers who gave us a sneaky look into her neighbour’s garden. The gap may be very narrow but it does get the mind wondering what may be happening behind that fence.
Thank you to everyone that entered photos for the challenge.
Entries for this week’s challenge are open until Monday 11th April 2016 and I’ll showcase five entries when announcing the next challenge. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Have fun!
