Thursday photo prompt: Circle #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.

Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows. Every Thursday at 10 a.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 will feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week.

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 22nd August and link back to this post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly.

Please be aware that I may be away from the computer for a day or two, so responses and reblogs may be delayed.

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!

  17. Nice pic, Sue. We have built our own, or rather husband has, to freak out the neighbours and also because we rather like it. When we sawed (had sawed) the big poplar that fell down some time back, husband kept back some of the nicest chunks and set them up in a circle. He put the previous owner’s homemade chopping block in the middle. It looks good. If ever we got tourists passing on our lane, they’d be out taking photos. All the neighbours have already stopped on the way past to wonder what it is. I’ll have to take some pictures.

  31. Hi Sue, I want to do some of the photo writing, but not sure how to go about it. Do I just pick a photo that is one of the ones for this and then comment on it, or do I need to do something different to submit one? Thank you kindly.

      Hi Anne,
      Use the current week’s photo… the challenge is open Thursday to the following Wednesday… and write something inspired by that photo and/or the prompt word for that week. Link back to the prompt post in your own post, then leave your post’s URL in the comments. 🙂
