Solitude...


An old man is slowly walking out from Royal Palace to Torino Cathedral.

...Solitude is going towards to the light. At the end of the life...

...Solitudine è avviarsi verso la luce. Alla fine della vita...

Great shot - the light is beautiful & so is the color of the walls. The composition is perfect, too :)

Amazing photo, as usual. I noticed that you love to play with lines in your photos. I love them.

The colors are amazing too.

Maybe you should post the photos of cathedral & palace? I love seeing photos of cathedral! :))

Nice photo. Love it. :D

Parola – come poche - di significato così contrastante: c’è la solitudine dell’asceta, della ricerca di uno stato di quiete e benessere interiore e c’è quella della tristezza, dell’abbandono.
Non riesco a considerare solitudine “un avviarsi verso la luce”, non nel senso piuttosto triste e rassegnato che la foto – veramente bella – suggerisce, per me quell’”avviarsi” è un sorriso, una speranza.
Scusa la lunghezza, ciao

Compelling photo and narrative.

I am back from my self-imposed vacation.

"Solitude, though it may be silent as light, is like light, the mightiest of agencies; for solitude is essential to man. All men come into this world alone and leave it alone."
- Thomas de Quincey (English author, 1785-1859)

Love that photo, Fabrizio! It's a beautiful image and fantastic atmosphere.

The words are beautiful, too.

Fabulous image Fabrizio, nicely exposed. I've got a story about a dolly in the lighthouse today.

I really like this one. I always enjoy symetry in photography. The person on the left gives it enough weight to keep it interesting. Beautiful place also.
