Most of the leaves in our part of the province are done for this year. We’ve gone through the entire “leaf peeping” craziness that started near the end of September. But, now we’re at Week 19 in “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 19 prompt saddens me a great deal.
We all know that masks and wearing them is but one part in controlling the spread of COVID_19. Here in Ontario we’ve been experiencing Wave #2 for a number of weeks now.
The picture above is what I’m calling the “new plastic bottle syndrome.” Instead of finding discarded plastic water bottles when hiking, we’re finding disposable masks instead. This was one of many found on several hiking trails in Algonquin park, when we visited in the first week of October.
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!
