Urban Isolation

I’m posting early today because I have to work late and won’t get a chance to post tonight. You may not really like this one, but for me it evokes a feeling of some place far off and isolated. Yet, although the photo is devoid of human activity, there’s this suggestion of life there, too. This could be anywhere, really. The composition isn’t perfect, by any means. The smoke stack is too close to the hydro tower for my liking. Overall, though, I do like this one. Makes me feel lonely.

    I like it very much. I grew up on the big, empty plains of South Dakota, USA. Similar to Sasketchuan. (sp?) I love space – big, massive, unending space. I feel wild and free in such places. Now I live in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

    One of the aspects of this photo that I find very intriguing is how the lines disappear as they head toward the steel tower. Interesting.

    • Thanks, HMB. Never been to S. Dakota but I bet it’s amazing. I was in Montana once as a kid with my folks and have some fond memories of that. I’ve never been to Minneapolis, either. I’ve been through Saskatchewan a few times. Very flat. You can watch your dog run away for three days. 🙂 I see what you mean about the wires. I could have dialed up the clarity and brought them up, but I rather like the dreamy quality of the photo.
