    The topic for the next challenge is the word "alone".

    I'd not like to provide any clues or further qualify the topic. Please interpret it any way you deem worthy.

    My only consideration while judging would be that your image have "gravitas" (defined by Webster's as "a very serious quality or manner").

    Looking forward to all your pictures!

    Rules are simple................

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    3. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    5. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the PL Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    6. The curator can't enter his or her own salon (that's me).

    7. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun!

    I'll start. A sole gull, taking the air in the early sunlight. I may have to edit some more, did it all in darkness on the ipad :) (no, looks pretty much like I wanted. I'll leave it)

    The reflection, combined with shadow, a-midst the expanse, of smooth wet sand, really catches the eye! great capture,

  8. My favorite cemetery to photograph. I find this marker especially poignant as it is not close to any others.

    I've deleted my original; having had a more detailed trawl through, I think that this fits the brief better:

    I can see that I'll have a tough time with selecting a winner already. Please stop posting more images.

    Edit- I just realized that humour doesn't translate well on the internet. This post was meant to be humorous. Don't stop! This is brilliant stuff!

    The lamp posts are like the bars of jail. She may have just been tired, but there is a feeling of desperation here.
