Thematic Photographic 281 - Emptiness

All alone
London, ON
September 2013
The scene: the multi-level parking garage at the local hospital. I've clearly gotten lost on my way back to my car because not only is my vehicle nowhere to be seen, but no other vehicles are here, either. This is what I imagine Superman's Fortress of Solitude might feel like, except he couldn't just return to the elevator and have a quick MRI for that pesky Kryptonite problem. Sorry about that, Man of Steel.

So instead of trying to find my car and get the heck out of dodge, I took pictures. Because I've always followed the illogically photographic path. And level 7A just looked like it needed a little love from my lens. And I think I needed it, too.

Your turn: This week's theme, emptiness, should give us all lots of room for interpretation. Literal? Figurative? A mixture of the two? They're all right, because this isn't about right and wrong. Thematic is about shooting and sharing your fave pics on your blog or website, then letting folks know in a comment here where they can find them. If you're new to this nuttiness, head here. Otherwise, grab your camera, grab a friend and head out. Lots of emptiness awaits, and I can't wait to see what you come up with. I'm guessing I'm hardly alone in that regard. Happy shooting!

Nothing is truly empty, even an empty glass is full of air. Check my emptiness at

I like your opening choice. It's a pure example of emptiness, and how emptiness can be ever changing, depending on the person viewing it. Amazing isn't it? There are times when I truly welcome emptiness, and a place to park! Here's mine
