Every Inchie Monday Challenge - SOLITUDE

Somewhere in the US it is still Sunday I hope, just. We got back from France Saturday night, but I spent so much time trying to catch up on my blog reading, I only got round to making last week's inchie this morning.

I took this photograph 4 years ago. It shows my youngest son standing next to the cross my husband built to replace the one which had been hit by lightning and burnt to the ground nearly 40 ago. It was quite an emotional day when we raised the cross and it was certainly celebrated in style. The whole neighbourhood was invited, we had a wonderful ceremony when the cross was blessed by the priest and the celebrations went on til late at night ( having started at 10am ). This photo was taken a few days later, with this amazing sunset creating the stunning background, and the silhouette of my son deep in thought providing the perfect picture of peaceful, contemplative solitude. It is one of my most favourite photographs.

That's it, on to the next one now, lol. I'll be back later with another post. Toodlepip xxx
