Photo prompt round-up: Fantasy #writephoto

Manifested dream

The shores of reality

Painted in pastels

Masked facade of fantasy

Reveals the dreamer’s laughter


The photo for this week’s prompt was taken 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.


Thank you to everyone who took part, visited or reblogged the posts or left comments for their authors. A new prompt will be published later today. As always, 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 next Thursday.

All the posts are listed below, so please click on the links below to read them and leave a comment for the author!

Pingbacks do not always come through… 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.

An invitation to writephoto writers…

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 writers to come and introduce themselves on the blog as my guest! Click here for details.

Come and join in!

    I enjoy your photos. The dreamers laughter to me ties in with the sounds of the water and the birds which can be dreamy and seem like giggling laughter on a good day 🙂
