When are you coming home?

by Lorna
(Saskatchewan, Canada)

It is not the amount of space around the subject in this photo that creates the sense of loneliness but the expression of the subject itself. This dog (unknown to us) seemed as though he was frozen beside the front steps of his home as he awaited the return of his owner(s). He never even acknowledged our presence as I captured his sadness and continued our journey. Definitely not a “watch dog”!

I was at the Cherry Beach this spring, trying to catch sunrise, when I noticed chair floating in the water.
It looked very lonely and abandoned ...

The Loneliest of All

by Clark Bales
(Toronto , Ontario, Canada)

Georgian Bay is one of the most beautiful & transcending places in our wonderful country ... overseeing this pageantry is the loneliest of all , the great flaming orb in the sky , majestic & universal , yet ultimately alone , casting a beam across the water in search of a friend ...

Little Church

This little church on the hill lies in a huge wheat farming area. It always looks so lonely, whenever I go past.

Quack

by Manfred Meilinger
(Wasaga Beach, ON)

During a recent day long photo club outing to a local farm practicing model photography, I noticed this little duck sitting forlorn on the window sill. It didn't seem to have much fun and nobody had played with it for a while.
Due to the nature of the subject, rules of 3rd's have been temporarly ignored.
Cheers
Manfred

Loneliness in the Shadows

by Pierre Falzon
(Pickering, Ontario, Canada)

It was quite a change after walking the streets in Rome amid the bustle of this vibrant city seeing people laughing and chatting and enjoying a coffee at the many outside cafes to turn into a side street and seeing this seemingly lonely man.

Me and my shadow

by Jack Pal
(Bayfield, ON, Canada)

This is about a dog exploring the vast White Sands of New Mexico all by herself (except for me, the photographer). This place is quiet and peaceful but could give a profound sense of being alone with nothing but white sand surrounding you

Boat at Sunset

Boat at Sunset

Boat at Sunset

This photo was taken a little after the sun went down near Craigleith Provincial Park. It was quite serene, and I was struck by how the water and sky blended together in colour. I composed the image to stretch the rule of thirds to the limit to exaggerate the isolation of the solitary boat drifting silently on the lake.

Halong Boatman

by John Stavinoha
(Cairo, Egypt)

I took a boat trip in Halong Bay, Vietnam and I was very disappointed that it was very foggy and misty (it was December). I wanted to get pictures of a sunny waterworld with big green lumpy islands. As it turned out, the atmosphere created by the overcast gave my pictures from that day much more mood than any sunny day.

That Lonesome Feeling

That Lonesome Feeling

That Lonesome Feeling

Though sunflowers are inanimate, they often seem to display personalities, and this one appears to be bereft at being left on its own. With its bowed head, I'm sure there would be tears flowing if it had a face.

Seasons of Desolation

by Hannah L.
(Bay Roberts, NL, Canada)

I took this photo a few years ago, but it seemed perfect for this months challenge. It's actually one of my favorites, I rendered it in black-and-white to bring out the lonely feel of the rusted crucifix and the barren winter trees behind. It has a dark, almost depressing feel, but still, I love the way it turned out.

Driving out the intruder

by David Colton
(San Diego, CA)

A courageous lone crow mobbing a red tailed hawk away. There were no other crows in sight. One wrong move could cost the crow its life. The crow looks white because the sun happened to reflect back perfectly from it's glossy black feathers.
