Desolation

Desolation.
Desolation.

Travel for work can be a lonely experience. The airport carpark late on a Friday night describes this feeling very well.

I’m adding this photo to Lucile’s Photo101 Rehab Clinic. Please come and take a look at some fabulous photographs from some die-hard photographers.

Taken with my Olympus OMD EM5, with the 17mm lens (35mm equivalent). It was very dark and I was shooting handheld: f/1.8, 1/25s, ISO200.

  3. I feel a bit frightened looking at this image wondering who is lurking in the shadows and what is going to come next. Great scene!

      Ha! It is a bit like that sometimes Lisa. It’s pretty rare for me to land before 8pm so I should be used to it after 10 years, but it can still be a little creepy.

    This is a fantastic photo, DesleyJane. There’s something about it that’s really powerful, too.

    Thanks Britta – lovely of you to say. I am a fan of these symmetrical hallways/roads/pathways. There’s just something about them.

    Love the lines in your shot. Not a nice place to be alone at night, but I suppose you get used to it?

      Thank you! Yes I’m fairly used to it now after so long. But sometimes it feels a little creepy. Thanks again.

    This photo tells a real story and is gritty. I’d be a bit scared too.
