Photo prompt round-up: Shade #writephoto


All tombs are empty

Life escapes imprisonment

Only shells remain


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in the churchyard of St Mary’s, Radnage, a place we found early in our travels and which played a prominent part in our work with the land in my area.

It featured in The Initiate for the unpleasant ‘taste‘ it left when we first visited…and later, in Heart of Albion, for the changes that were wrought there. It is a church with a long history, dating back to the Knights Templar…and it is a place where the shadows of the past  still make their presence felt.


My thanks, as always, to all those who took part.My apologies for the brevity and lateness of comments this week and the reduced number of reblogs… the workshop kept me offline for several days and I am still catching up.

All the posts inspired by this image 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 responses.

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.

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 Reminder and an invitation

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!


Please leave your comments for the contributors on their blogs.
