Well isn’t this strange.
Haven’t had much(well no response to date) on Lynn’s picture prompts. I get that people are busy and more than likely have enough other prompts and writing to keep them more than occupied.
Thought I might repost it again to see what happens.
Is Tuesday the wrong day. Would another day be better??
Welcome to our first picture writing prompt, so let’s get started.
Art(including pictures and images) should evoke an emotional response in those who are viewing them. That’s why art can leave such a long lasting and poignant imprint within the depths of our psyche.
Your challenge or writing prompt is this:
- what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn
Remember, the goal isn’t necessarily to tell me and others exactly what the picture is.
The creative goal for all of us is “what does the picture evoke in you; what emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in you and to share it that with others.“
As a bit of background, this was taken last summer at the Halifax Public Gardens, located ironically in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
These are actually spot lights used to illuminate Griffin’s Pond at the Public Gardens in the evening. They are located in the wall of a faux-cottage(pumphouse for the pond). They are a challenge to notice as they are made to look like little portholes in the faux-cottage(pumphouse)
A few points to help along the way:
- write a post on your own blog and create a pingback to link back to the original post(this one)
- I’ll reblog your responses on my own blog when I get the notification
- write an original story; perhaps your own thoughts; maybe some poetry or even a simply one word response. Maybe even post that says “it does nothing; means nothing”
- regardless, whatever you write must encapsulate the emotion or feeling evoked or aroused in you from the picture
- no limit on the length(I guess)
- keep it a “family friendly” as possible(not looking to delete or not approve stuff)
Be sure to tag your responses with:
Looking forward to your thoughts!
