Thursday photo prompt: Remains #writephoto


Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt.  If you know where the photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the challenge is closed and I usually share something about the place during the round-up.

This week, there are two photos. To give a choice of interpretation for the title, ‘Remains’, I have included one rather dark picture and one a little ‘lighter’. You can choose to use either, or both images in your work.

Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows. Every Thursday at 10a.m. GMT, a full round-up of posts will be published linking back to the original posts of contributors.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers. I feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week, but given the volume of contributions that will seldom  be all of them!

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 13th June and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up on Thursday. There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

If you are unsure of how to create a pingback, Hugh has an excellent tutorial here.


Pingbacks need to be manually approved, so either check back to make sure that the pingback has appeared or simply copy and paste your link into the comments section of this post.

 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. Don’t forget to use the #writephoto hashtag in your title so your posts can be found.

Have fun!

  30. HI Sue, here’s my contribution for this week. Great photos!


  31. Erm… I want to choose both. I mean, it’s a challenge. Am we being challenged? Do we choose one? Do we try to weave the two together? This so tempting… Awesome shots, both. 😍

    Hi Sue,

    That was indeed a beautiful and thought-provoking photo prompt. I meant to write my post much earlier but simply could not find the time. I am afraid I don’t have a Pingback as blogger does not support Pingbacks. Anyways here is the link to my post.

    I’ve posted my offering Sue, say’s the Shed owner with a rueful look as if to say, “Once again it’s on my favourite topic…”
