"Loneliness is a condition of human life, an experience of being human which enables the individual to sustain, extend, and deepen his humanity.

There is a power in loneliness, a purity, self-immersion, and depth which is unlike any other experience. Being lonely is such a total, direct, vivid experience, so deeply felt, so startingly different, that there is no room for any other perception, feeling, or awareness.

No person can remain unchanged once he opens himself to loneliness and surrenders himself to the terror and beauty of a totally isolated existence.

All creations in some way spring from solitude, meditation, and isolation."

- Clark Moustakas (Loneliness, 1961)

Place : One really hot day in a park in Singapore.

Occasion : Just strolling around taking Infrared (IR) pictures.

Modified Nikon D90, Enhanced IR (630 nm) conversion, Nikon 18-55mm lens.
