A singular image

Some of the best images feature a singular, lonely, subject such as a person, tree, house, building, or car. The single subject can evoke emotions like curiosity and melancholy. Carefully composed the single subject scene can have more impact that a more cluttered one.


A single subject sitting on a boat on a river by herself, looking out of the frame raises curiosity. There is a feeling that she is looking to the past. Mekong River, Cambodia – 2017


The single old house on a hill surrounded by bleak winter snow gives a sense of abandonment. Plamondon, Alberta – 2007
