Hugh’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Week 20- “Solitude”

I’ve posted this pic, not because it’s specially good (it’s not) but because it made me smile. Solitude it is, taken at dawn this morning down on the quays at Bordeaux, with a thick mist on the Garonne. Calm and peaceful. Except, if you look in the middle of the bank of mist, you can see the Horned One making its way up from the sea…

Actually, the horns are all that you can make out of the towers at either side of the new Chaban-Delmas bridge.


Visit Hugh’s blog for some much better, proper photos of solitude.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. I can see the horns and they do look very mysterious. Almost as if a dragon is coming out of the mist.
    You say it’s not a particularly good photo, Jane, but I think it’s a lovely shot. With nobody about it certainly does say solitude.
    Thanks for joining in with the challenge.

    1. I’ll let you into a secret, Margaret. It was my husband who took this photo because of the “Horned One” where the bridge usually is. I married a kindred spirit ๐Ÿ™‚ You’d like him too.

    1. As far as I know, it’s only ever called ‘le nouveau’. Nobody even gives it is proper name. We may be the only people to have cracked its true identity ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I think its a lovely photo! And what are you people doing up at dawn? You should be sleeping, like the rest of us. I really cannot do early mornings. Anything before 8am is too early, which means every morning for the past 15 years AK (after kids).
