A picture can prompt a thousand words.

My first thought, when I saw this week’s prompt, was to share a few of the photographs I’ve taken which have either inspired stories and story elements, or served as reference for scenes I’ve written.

And I will do that, in just a sec.

First, though, I must share my all-time favorite story-in-one-picture shot:

I call it: “I do NOT like celery, Mom.”

It’s not the best photo, but it perfectly captures my dog’s sense of betrayal. In my defense, he likes almost everything people eat, so I had no idea he’d hate it so.

And, as promised, here are a just a few of the shots that have prompted some of my writing:


Here are some of my favorite STORY responses from others:

Fair warning: I’m returning to regular blogging after a long hiatus. I haven’t quite got the hang of it yet. My posting schedule is off, and things might be a little messy if you wander around long enough.

  1. All gorgeous photos! Remember to add scents to each in the writing. Really brings it to life. Dig the Bigfoot cut-out. My weirdo dog loves celery.

    • Thank you.

      Our new dog likes celery just fine. She’ll even eat lettuce … another food that our old guy thinks is contemptible … unless it has some kind of dressing on it.

      I spied the Bigfoot on a road trip with a very non-paranormal friend of mine. She indulged me by taking the next exit, looping back, AND tramping up a hill so I could get several shots.

    • Hey, Sheila, I’m planning to get back to reading blogs too. Was checking my old blog reader and your blog is coming back as inactive for a long time. Are you writing somewhere else these days?

    I am back blogging and apparently I have missed some good stuff … I will be digging through your blog this week

    • Oh! Then we’re in the same boat.

      There’s not much new her yet, but I hope to get to a good place of regular blogging AND reading.

      I’m just now setting up a new blog reader app called Inoreader. Trying to clean up the old one was just too daunting. I’ll add your feed tonight.

  3. Fabulous clicks! Lovely layout! Wow!
