Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt – Week 43

This is first post for April. Let’s hope “April showers will bring May flowers.”

Nevertheless, it is Tuesday and that means “Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt.”

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.

Our Week 43 picture is a grouping of stone landmarks know as “inukshuks” or singular an “inukshuk”. They are stone landmarks or cairns built by First Nations)FN) people of the northern Canada and used originally as navigation elements that would stand out on a frozen landscape. They are also to mark sacred locations of FN peoples.

They have also become very popular or unpopular depending on you one talks too. Lynn snapped a picture of these at Torrance Barrens Dark Sky Preserve located not far from our house.

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 post on my 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!

  1. These cairns remind me of the hundreds, rather thousands of cairns I’ve seen in Patapampa, Peru, at Mirador de los Andes, the highest point we’ve passed by on our road trip in that area. I knew about inukshuks, as people like to build them in Canada, especially along the river beds, but I can’t get out of my mind that huge field of cairns from Peru! As far as you could see, there were thousands of stacked rocks, really impressive!
    I wasn’t familiar that so many cultures uses them, and I think they come from ancient times.
    I think I have a photo of that field in this post:
    take care, Christie

    1. Thanks for commenting Christie. Yes, they are failry common here, in that people make just about anyplace they find enoguh small rocks. Over the years, there been much controversy about their contsruction in terms of cultural misappropriation of First Nations heritage and culture.

      Interesting that there appears to be many culture across the world tht use or have used in the past something similar.

      Agian, thanks for stopping by.
