Photography101 – Day 5 – Solitude

I spotted this shack when sailing from Raiatea to Taha’a, in French Polynesia. It was surrounded by water and very ramshackle. It fascinated me and I imagined a Robinson Crusoe type character spending his days there in total solitude – perhaps a writer trying to finish what he hoped would be the next great novel.

  3. Whoever lives there can be assured that I envy him/her a lot! Nice interpretation of the theme!
