Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

Let’s face it , it’s hard to find some solitary time in the city. Especially when you live in a mega-city of 23 million people.
These photos were taken in Pingyao, China , an ancient walled city in Shanxi province where with the exception of beer advertising umbrellas looks much the same as did it half a millenium ago. It’s very easy to lose oneself while wandering through the ancient stone corridors , thinking about who else has strolled this way in the centuries before.

This last one isn’t a person but it seems to be enjoying its solitude too!

  1. I sooo love Chinese alleys. I have incredible memories of midnight walks through the alleys of Taipei. Completely safe, with unexpected things growing, living, transpiring, at every turn. Nice photos πŸ™‚
