show me the way to go home

Photography 101: SolitudeCapture a snapshot that conveys the state of being alone.


Cairns built by unknown hands high on the Lakeview Mountain Trail in British Columbia’s Cathedral Provincial Park, all show you the way home. When the mist comes up they are a welcome sight to the traveller suddenly very much alone in the solitude of the mountain.

This painting was first a photograph and is now a photograph of a painting. I hope this legitimizes its inclusion in Photography 101. I will await the reprimand.


  1. I don’t think there will be any reprimands here… I thought at first it was one of those artistic effects that turn your photos into watercolors… but this is much better. Great painting. er I mean photo… 🙂
