Photo prompt round-up: Painted #writephoto

The vision of Man

In harmony with Nature

Dream or ambition

Painted by a hopeful heart

Suspended between two worlds


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in the Japanese Garden, hidden in the Gwyllt, the ‘Wildwood’ at Portmeirion, Wales, during one of our summer workshop weekends a few years ago.

Portmeirion is the strange and colourful village created by the architect and conservationist, Sir Clough Williams-Ellis. Tucked away on the Welsh coast, at first glance it resembles a picture-postcard Italian village, and yet all is not what it seems… and many things are far more than they seem.

Williams-Ellis sought to bring humankind and Nature together, illustrating with his architecture the ideal and harmonious relationship that should exist between us. Many of the buildings and statuary are recycled from other, far-flung places…and, if you get there before the crowds and have the place to yourself, it is a place so full of tantalising mysteries that a single visit could never be enough.

And yet, this village is well-known to many who have never set foot there, being the place where the 1967 television series, The Prisoner, was filmed, co-written by and starring Patrick McGoohan as Number Six.

    I think your words fit the intention of the creator of the space.
    It looks quite lovely. I have heard of ‘The Prisoner’ but haven’t seen it.


  6. Thank you for providing the contextual information behind the prompt photo. I had been wondering about it!
