Photo prompt round-up: Honour #writephoto


Memories survive
Rekindling old emotions
Truth becomes legend
The lens of perception blurs
We see what we wish to see


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in the chapel in the side chapel of the  church at Bakewell. that houses a number of elaborate memorials… and which had helped set us on a curious journey of discovery. The picture shows the effigy of a knight and a message left in his memory, over six hundred years after his death.

The knight is Sir Thomas Wendesley, who was slain at the Battle of Shrewsbury, in 1403, during the uprising led by Owain Glyndŵr. The Battle was a decisive victory for the king, even though his men were decimated by the enemy archers and as the arrows “fell like leaves in Autumn, every one struck a mortal man“. Sir Thomas wears chainmail and armour and his helmet bears the coded inscription ‘IHC Nazaren’, which signifies “Have mercy on me, Jesus of Nazareth”.

Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week and happy new year to you all! I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to create their own story from these prompts. I wish there was space to reblog all the contributions, as there are some beautiful pieces every week that I would love to reblog, but which come in after I have filled all the allocated slots.

All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links to read them and leave a comment for the author.

Thank you too, to everyone who reblogged the prompt, round up and the individual resposes.

Pingbacks do not always come through… and I can miss things too, so if you have written a post for this challenge and it does not appear in the round-up, please leave a link to your post in the comments and I will add it to the list.

A new prompt will be published later today. I will reblog as many contributions as space and time allows, as they come in… and all of them will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

As there are usually too many contributions to reblog all of them every week, and so that we can get to know their writers, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my  guest! ‘Regulars’ does not mean you have to take part every week… Click here for details

Come and join in!
