You can be alone in pretty much every place on this planet. As soon as you put up your personal invisible barrier it is done. You can be alone in a big crowd of people. Or literally, out in the nature with no one around you.
In photographs though, you often get the feeling that a place is pretty lonely. The trick is to just show you a tiny window of the landscape, hiding all the tourists or crowds around you. That way, you could manage to bring across a certain extend of solitude.
You don’t always need to travel to the furthest deserts to have that feeling. Even in a big city you can find a quiet corner where you are alone and get the same sort of feeling. I love finding those corners, here in the town I’m living or when abroad. I like my peace and quiet every once in a while, hiding there with a good book on my lap.
For this particular SL-Week Challenge “Alone” I would like to share one of those pictures that make you think there’s no one around. I won’t be lying to you though – the place was pretty crowded 😉 The beautiful Salar de Uyuni in Bolivia is a well-known desert, visited by loads of tourists every day. I loved the view of this particular tourist I spotted amongst the others, a bit on the side, weirdly enough for us with an umbrella. It made the whole picture so strange and beautiful, with a hint of madness, that I’m very glad I got to catch that in a photograph. I hope you enjoy it 🙂
