“We're born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we're not alone.”

I totally agree with the Orson Welles quote.
The picture is very evocating this state of mind.

A beautiful way not to be alone, being part of the big Whole (never forget the "w" here ;) in Mother Nature's arms. A splendid presence in this black silhouette and we do feel his eyes over the boats, sea, horizons & his own thoughts. And we do accompany him & you*

What a chilling commentary by Mr Wells . . would that we could be alone in such a crowded Universe ! I see the guy, here, weighing all those tempting options floating out there . . his only dilemma is which to choose. Now, for some more coffee.

Meaningful words and picture. It makes me think about loneliness.

He seems to be contemplating the Canucks grasp on the Stanley Cup Sharon! Unless they pull up their socks and play better that is all it will be.... A super image! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Thanks Eric. Yeah...I hope the home ice advantage is just that. We are all sitting on pins and needles here.
Best of luck tonight, I am rooting for the Canucks!

@Ralph Jones: Thank you. They are going to have to play amazing tonight...fingers crossed!

Loneliness is a state of mind not a physical one. One can feel alone amidst a crowd.

Hi Sharon....love the photo and the quote. You were my first introductions to Aminus (found you on cool photoblogs) and I must say that I am a big fan of your work. This one is no exception:) Have a great day.

A very strong image with that great silhouette. The quotation is quite thought provoking.
15 Jun 2011 6:22pm
such a strong silhouette, well done.
15 Jun 2011 8:05pm
The silhouette is both evocative and impervious to our wondering what this person is feeling; a beautiful paradox in a very nice composition. On another note, may your Cup runneth over tonight!

There is so much truth in that quote. The melancholic image is a perfect pairing.

Beautiful shot. You always create great mood and tension in your work.

A wistful solitude--or is it simple isolation? A poignant shot for sure, and very nicely done.
