Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitude


This picture really represents solitude to me, I had taken this picture – along with several others, of the icicles that were right outside my window. At that point, I had a small room where I had my sewing stuff and there was the window to let in lots of light. On this particular day, I remember feeling rather empty and alone (even though I was still living with my husband and daughter at the time). So I got my camera out and just started snapping some pictures.

I’ve always been fascinated by icicles – they just look so cool and interesting. But at the same time, they can be somewhat dangerous – depending how big they get and when/where they fall. I like how some of these almost look see-through, while others are opaque.

Maybe it’s just the way I was feeling that day, I’m really not sure, but the solitude came from the fact that I felt “trapped” – lonely, alone. And this picture really reminds me of that time – the way they almost look like bars on the window – trapping me in that room.



I am a woman who is trying to make the best of life, the only way I know how. My family is very important to me and I like to think that I'm always there for them. My children, ages 31, 24, and 22 are awesome kids. I also have two beautiful baby granddaughters, with them - my life is complete. We have our issues, of course, like anyone else - but we manage to get through them somehow.
