One: Photo Friday Challenge
Why is it that a photograph of one person immediately draws to mind the song “One is a lonely number”? I only ask because my first inclination with this photo was to give it that title. My wife, son and I went for a walk a couple of days ago and Ben decided that he’d had enough walking so he sat down on this dock. Despite knowing that there were three of us on this walk, and that this is not a photo of some lost boy on a dock, my feeling was one of loneliness.
Maybe it’s his posture. Maybe it’s the coolness of black and white. Maybe it’s a psychological projection on my part to believe that when one is alone, one must be lonely. But there doesn’t have to exist that connotation, does there? Alone, oneness, does not have to be lonely.
