Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

Posted by Jody on September 23, 2012

“Being solitary is being alone well: being alone luxuriously immersed in doings of your own choice, aware of the fullness of your won presence rather than of the absence of others. 
Because solitude is an achievement.” 
~Alice Koller, Author

Solitary Surfer


This surfer, alone in his thoughts, was photographed at Imperial Beach on San Diego’s South Bay.

Imperial Beach is one of our favorite strands. With the surfer theme evident throughout the community, it’s always easy to catch the laid-back surfing spirit, if not a wave! For its litter-free beach, great beachcombing, Southern California surfing vibe, and wonderful community pier, Greg and I each give Imperial Beach “two thumbs up!”

  1. Love this pic, and the quote too. Just came across it after posting my ‘solitary’ picture, which is also a Californian surfer! x

    What a great photo. A man, his board, and the sea. Out on the waves one really does get a sense of being alone with his thoughts.
