Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 19

Glen is the host of Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt

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 19 prompt saddens me a great deal.

We all know that masks and wearing them is but one part in controlling the spread of COVID_19. Here in Ontario we’ve been experiencing Wave #2 for a number of weeks now.

The picture above is what I’m calling the “new plastic bottle syndrome.” Instead of finding discarded plastic water bottles when hiking, we’re finding disposable masks instead. This was one of many found on several hiking trails in Algonquin park, when we visited in the first week of October.


She cursed his stupidity and stubbornness. If only he had worn the mask that day, how many lives could have been saved. They only knew that he was infected a couple of days after their trip to the mountains.

Zack always thought himself strong and healthy and always went contrary to the sensible advice given to him by his well-wishers. Now he was gone because he didn’t believe that wearing masks helped save lives. But he was now the cause of the death of four of his buddies too as he got together with them after being infected.

Death was inevitable for everyone but dying because one was too stubborn really cut into her soul!
