Photo prompt round-up: Transition #writephoto



Poised between two worlds

In quiet meditation

Point of perfect peace


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in Glastonbury, looking out from the doorway of the tiny chapel of St Margaret on Magdalen Street. It is a place of perfect peace in a town usually bristling with visitors and a place where, in spite of its Christian dedication, you can quietly touch the much older roots of reverence in this ancient and sacred patch of land.

My thanks, as always, to all those who took part. 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 resposes.

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.

Many people are having problems with pingbacks not coming 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.
