  1. You’re shot in Hanoi is tops. Quintessential Vietnam. I wish that I shot it, and I don’t just see solitude but also discipline and dedication.

  2. Hitting the wall? In this case, much better than hitting the ground. Sheesh! What some people get up to.

  3. From a true fan of solitude, these photos are the best, especially morning on Kiawah!

  4. Good post & good memories! Well done.

  5. Beautiful, as always. Loved the theme.

  6. love the photos….and the words that accompany them….so thoughtful….soothing!!

  7. Really good lighting! When you were taking these shots, did you imagine your theme or was there something in seeing lone people in each shot that grabbed you?

  8. my goodness, your work is so beautiful. Today’s offering, like so many, makes
    for good meditation time.
