Solitude by azrael-x64 Solitude by azrael-x64




fullview :eager:

Have you ever felt the need to be all alone and perhaps read a book, or just lay back in your bed and ponder at your thoughts about your everyday life or your dreams or the people you call friends, family or lovers and really appreciate that silence and solitude?
I think we all have.

Perhaps this photo has all that mixed together, one man, one big subway station (not exactly quiet, but it certainly appears so) and me, to covertly capture that moment.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

this is not my usual style of photography, you can check out the best my gallery has to offer here

thanks for your support :ahoy:

and another thanks for ~Kiralyna and ^l8 for the DD :)

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-10-25
I've looked at Solitude by ~azrael-x64 at least 50 times and it still fascinates me. The immensity of that place, the silence, the solitude, in a way it makes you feel small in the world, yet I always find myself wanting to be in the shoes of that person. Being all alone in a place otherwise overcrowded, reading a book, daydreaming or just being able to hear my thoughts, without anyone interrupting... Wouldn't you want to be there too?

This is an impressively atmospheric piece of work with a strong sense of balance and something of a melancholy aesthetic. Good stuff, without doubt, and deserving of the attention that it has thus far garnered.

Oh, man, it's amazing! Simple composition, simple light, but really strong atmosphere. So long time I want to take a picture of the same feeling in the underground. But in my country there aren't such interesting and spacious stations.


...wish you a good light for the next such interesting works
..and where is it?

thank you for your comment.

there probably are in your country too, you probably haven't looked hard enough ;)

this is taken in Bucharest (Romania), Titan subway station :ahoy:

Yeah, it's possible to find it in my country. But it's too claustrophobic. Small halls full of columns....yes, I know why I cannot find so strong atmosphered station - it's advertisement. Underground in the Czech Republic is full of advertisement and that kills all the possible atmosphere :-(

I wasn't talking necessarily about subway stations, but places that are beautiful and with the right tools and skills you couldd produce powerful images :)
