Thursday photo prompt: Imagination #writephoto


Something a bit different this 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 23rd January 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.

(Feel free to ignore the road sign in the photo, unless that works with your story…)

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a piece of street art; a woman, veiled and crowned with greenery, shown in profile. She is painted against a holo of flame colours with a stained glass winddow effect and surrounded by white flowers on a black background. The woman is painted as transparent, showing her skeleton and brain through the flesh. The brain glows from within, and appears tohold figures…

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday January 24th at 10am GMT, linking back to the original posts of contributors. Throughout the week I will feature as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows and (more or less) in the order in which they come in.

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.

Please link your post to this by creating a pingback. 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.

Meanwhile, I would like to invite all writephoto regulars to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my  guest!

Have fun!

    Reblogged this on Campbells World and commented:
    Here’s a rather interesting photo prompt.
    For you who are visually challenged, this photo is described.
    Please do have a look and if you’re so inspired, please do take part.
    I for one don’t have a clue what to do with this one.
    That may change but in the meantime I shall be watching to see what others might do.
    Please do make certain to read the guidelines before beginning.
    Have fun!

    The first thing I thought of when I saw the photo was “The girl with kaleidoscope eyes”, so I made a little tribute to one who could Imagine: If it is OK, I may do a short story on the photo as well.

  24. I love your pictures. I’m just not doing much in the way of prompts right now. I feel very over-prompted. I don’t mind photographic ones because it gives me a chance to raid my 100,000 picture files.

    But writing? I’ve been writing a lot less and when I do, I want it to be whatever I want to say assuming I have something to say — which is becoming increasingly rare. Sometimes I hook a piece onto a prompt, but really, I wrote the piece before and the prompt sort of fit.
