Thursday photo prompt: Choices #writephoto


Welcome to this week’s writephoto prompt. Something a bit different this week as I have a long road trip coming up before the next round-up is due. I did consider not posting a prompt at all… but it did not seem fair to break the rhythm somehow. Instead, I am posting four photographs to cover TWO weeks prompts. The two prompt words are ‘small’ and ‘choices’.

Take your pick.

Each week, choose one of the images below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  Wednesday 19th June 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.

I will repost this prompt next Thursday as a reminder.

**Please note that many people on WordPress are having problems with pingbacks not getting through, so please also leave a comment on this post, linking back to your response to the prompt so that I know you have posted. **

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday June 20th, linking back to the original posts of contributors. Throughout the two weeks I will reblog as many of the responses here on the Daily Echo as time and internet access allows but please be aware that comments may be delayed or minimal on days when I am travelling.

You can find all last week’s entries in the 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, and many people are having problems with them not getting through at all, 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.


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
