Thursday photo prompt – The Chest… #writephoto


This week’s photo prompt is a battered, iron-bound chest…rusted and corroded with age… Where did it come from? What does it hold…why does it need three keys to unlock its secrets…and where are they now?

You can find all last week’s entries in the round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers.

Use the image to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… by Wednesday 18th May and link back to this post with a pingback. Please make sure that the pingback works and if not, copy and paste your link into the comments section of this post.

Don’t forget to use the new and shiny #writephoto hashtag in your title:)

The first few posts will feature on the blog during the week and all posts will be included in a round up on Thursday 19th May.

Feel free to use #writephoto logo or include the prompt photo in your post if you wish or you can replace it with one of your own to illustrate your work.

Have fun!

  3. This one…hard to resist. Ours was a steamer trunk that made it across the Atlantic, and later held family secrets. Thanks for a fascinating prompt. 💔

    A bit of a strange response, but I thought I’d use your prompt to tie up the loose ends from last week’s entry.

    Hi Sue, I’m kinda new–though I’m familiar with you and your work 🙂 I realize I’m late for this prompt, but it’s so evocative that I might like to write something to it–if so, I’ll link to you. 🙂
