Alone At Sunset: Weekly Photo Challenge – Solitude

“This week, show us what being alone means to you.”

Solitude is air and water and sunlight to me. That is hyperbole, yes, but I say it anyway. Without daily periods of solitude, I wilt. Alone with a book or with my camera, inside my home or somewhere outside. I relish the time I spend on my own.

And sometimes I see solitude reflected back at me. This American kestrel on a lamp post at sunset, for example.kestrel-on-lamp-post

Bird at Sunrise: Weekly Photo Challenge – Graceful

“Gracefulness is a tricky quality — it manifests itself as an effortless, subtle harmony between a subject and its environment….For this week’s challenge, share something that says “graceful” to you”.

It was morning and the bird sat on a thin branch of the privet hedge, eating. Its head went up and down smoothly, as it easily picked the fruit out of the open pods. Oblivious to the sunrise or the clumsy human observer.

From My Roof: Weekly Photo Challenge – Local

An important part of local for me is the house I’ve lived in for more than a quarter of a century in Kingston. Mornings and evenings I go up on the roof. I sit. I look around. I think. It’s a good vantage point for observing things both near and far. And sometimes I take photos.
