Solo Walk

Photo taken by contributor Hank Shaw, a 63-year-old writer based in Rochester, N.Y. Many of his friends and family members have suffered from depression and serious mental health issues.

About this photo: “I took this at Durand Eastman Park, near Lake Ontario, on one of my last photo hikes before the arrival of winter. The picture has meaning to me on a couple of different levels. I have always admired Asian art that puts people in the proper global perspective, highlighting our relative insignificance in the scheme of things. The photo also makes me think about the difference between loneliness, which is sad, and solitude, which is a state of peace and contentment, sometimes even ecstasy.”
