Welcome to Farktography!

This Week's Theme:
"Isolation"

Description: Isolation, it's not just you. Shows us images that show or represent isolation of persons, places, or things.

We ask that before submitting your photos you read and adhere to the following submission rules, including but not limited to the following:
- Submissions must be photographs; screen captures do not count as photographs.
- You must be the original photographer of your entry. Do not submit anyone else's photography as your own.
- You are only allowed to enter a photograph once. Do not submit the same photo to another contest later.
- You may enter 3 photos in each contest as long as each photo is of a different composition.
- Please post each photo separately so they can be voted for individually.


Please note:
The overarching ideal behind Farktography is that image corrections are acceptable, while adding or removing elements in the image (e.g. removing telephone poles, adding Elvis) is not acceptable. Levels, curves, contrast, saturation, crop, and black-and-white conversion tools may be used judiciously, but not to cartoonish or unrealistic extremes. Avoid applying artistic filters for the purpose of mimicking film, tilt-shift, toy camera, etc type effects. HDR and panorama stitching either in-camera or in post processing are not allowed unless specified for a particular theme (true multiple exposures done in-camera are acceptable, however). See the rules for more information on acceptable modifications, or check in at the Farktography Forums.

Legal: All photographers submitting photos to this contest are the legal copyright holders for the photos submitted and the photos are not to be considered free for any other use without written consent from the submitting photographers.
- Drop by the Farktography Forum on Fark (new window) or or Farktography.com (for chatting, critique, techtalk and so on)
- Check stats or review whether you've used a photo before at Bibliostats .

Nothing says isolation quite like Iceland. There are HUGE stretches of absolutely NOTHING but empty roads. It's eerie.

I don't normally take pictures of people. I saw her, and she looked so alone in the crowd.

Stumbled on this eerie combo of river-rock and girl along the Rogue in Oregon's Cascades; a child's face cut tight to its lines from some photo, left behind the middle of nowhere and beginning to warp in the rain. It hadn't been there long, but everything was silent and still and I was miles from any town or major road. I still wonder who and how she is, and how her photo was abandoned there; I hope it was by accident and not in ugliness or grief.

I took her photo with me because I'm a total sap and didn't want her to be alone.

/Also, I'm not sure if it's okay to give context/captions in these threads; mods, please delete my posts if not. Thanks!

Poor Bert, knocked down by life and brokenhearted (or at least partially de-stuffed in his general heart-area), calling into the void from the lonely wilderness (or a neglected flower pot in a quiet French alley)!

On my way to Coeur d'Alene, ID, a couple weeks ago, I saw a former co-worker...

...well, okay, she was on a billboard for the local hospital in Moscow, ID...

On top of Osceola, 8587 feet, North Cascades, WA. My wife is a cancer survivor with diminished lung capacity. She cannot physically make the hikes, so I take pics of her tattoo from the top of mountains. Isolated, but never alone.
