Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt- 18

Glen is the host of LTPP

He says;

Art(including pictures and images) should evoke an emotional response in those who are viewing them. That’s why art can leave such a long-lasting and poignant imprint within the depths of our psyche

Your challenge or writing prompt is this:

  • what emotions or feelings get evoked or aroused in you when you look at this photograph taken by Lynn

Remember, the goal isn’t necessarily to tell me and others exactly what the picture is.

The creative goal for all of us is “what does the picture evoke in you; what emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in you and to share it that with others.

Our Week 18 prompt has been photographed by just about everyone that has ever held a camera. Okay, perhaps not, but this abandoned farmhouse about an hour away from us, does show up in social media platforms more often than not.


Stumbling over icy ground, he spotted the farmhouse

Saying a prayer of thanks for guiding him towards shelter

He tentatively opened the door of the derelict structure

With surprise, he noted that the interior didn’t match

The broken-down exterior in look or condition either

It was comfortably furnished with a few chairs and a rugs

A fireplace was stacked with wood ready to be lit

On a table near the door, he found a note telling him

“Welcome to you stranger, make use of the facilities here

But don’t make this your permanent abode

Leave it in the same condition you found it so that

Someone else in need can find food and comfort here”

  1. Oh, that is beautiful. Imagine if all of the abandoned buildings could be like that. Unfortunately, I have heard that some people who do try and help in a way such as this are then left with an awful mess. I guess maybe if you are on the street you might forget what to do in an appropriate way. Maybe they get overwhelmed with things around them they just don’t even think about it. That was always something I wondered about. I mean I understand if you don’t have money to even fix things but you don’t need to make it worse with garbage and all that. My late husband, and this was probably 35 years ago, worked on low income housing, doing repairs and all that. He said they would finish a job and go back a week later and the place was a mess again. Maybe some people have more to worry about?

    1. I think it is a complicated thought process. There is a lot of resentment among those who are destitute and they show it by not caring for the environment around them. Like taking food from the garbage bin and leaving everything scattered around.
