Lonely Flower Siddharth Atre The Seventh Line

What is it about us that abhors solitude? Disregarding a few eccentrics, the vast majority of humanity cannot tolerate being alone for more than a certain period of time. Sole survivors of naval and airplane accidents often tell stories of hallucinating and sometimes even going insane just from the trauma of being utterly alone. We are social organisms and we cannot live without companionship. Like fish out of water, humans will desperately search for other humans when they realize that they are isolated. Why is this? What inherent quality inside us causes us to be like this?

Experiment From Above

This is a photo I took from the window of an airplane as it left San Jose to San Diego, with the light cast from the rising sun. Soon after takeoff, for just a few seconds as the plane banked, the lighting was just perfect. I managed to snap this photo just before the plane completed its turn and the moment vanished. Lately, I have been trying to buff up my post processing skills, and this photo represents the beginning of that. The tilt-shift and slight border vignette effects I added in post-processing, but the lighting is all natural. In fact, I think that the two-layer glass window had some effect on the light as it came into my camera. The white field dominating the image is the cloud layer and the dark spire in the background is a mountain. In the top right corner is the plane’s wing.
