Weekly Challenge #491 - Isolation
Posted By: DeKay, 03-18-2020, 03:26 AM

With the Corona Virus in full swing and a lot of us spending more time isolated, show me your best isolation photo.

This challenge will close at 18:00hrs AWST (or there abouts) on March 25th.

The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax/Ricoh (DSLR) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

I'm not going to provide examples as I don't want to influence your creativity.

Now a recreation area, this used to be the Baldwin Hills reservoir. On December 14, 1963 the dam leaked then broke, releasing 250 million gallons of water resulting in five deaths and wiping out 277 homes.

You can see a video here.

A country in lockdown. This one was in 2015. Tourism was just starting to pick up again, but Now there is a new lockdown.

Isolation was part of mountain life.

This cemetery is all that is left of a small town after the railroad was removed.

Even pets can feel isolated.

Isolation, the thing I like most about the desert.
