Photo Theme: Solitude


The theme for today’s Photo 101 challenge is Solitude.  I took this picture a few month ago in Beijing.  I think I was a little envious of this woman because she was able to be alone to contemplate what she saw.  I, on the other hand, was part of an organized tour.  The tour guide was rushing to get us back to the tour bus so she could take us to the pearl factory and the jade factory and the silk factory so that we would buy stuff there.*  Oh, well, everyone’s got to make a living.

*Full disclosure:  I did in fact buy things at the pearl factory, the jade factory, and the silk factory.
