Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 39

Glen is the host of LTPP

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 39 picture is also from Nova Scotia, but is of the harbour portion of the village of Peggy’s Cove. Peggy’s Cove is most famous for its lighthouse perched on a rocky outcropping at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean. However, the real beauty of the village is found in the houses and fish shanties that sit along the sides of the harbour.


Sara looked at the sight before her eyes unbelievingly. The village hadn’t changed a bit in the last ten years. When she left, it was to find a new life for herself, and now coming home she wasn’t sure that she had achieved anything at all.

She wondered which of her old neighbors she would find living here still? Some from the older generation had passed away, she knew. But maybe some of her friends would be around.

There were mixed emotions in her heart as she stepped on the dock. She felt a strange exhilaration and wanted to shout for joy. It was homecoming!

  1. This was very near to my thoughts and emotions when I moved back to Newfoundland after living in Ontario for over twenty years! The image is very like many harbours in my native province as well. You nailed it, Sadje!

  2. This is a wonderful story about homecomings, after years of being away and the thoughts that come with it. I do want to point out an error (plz do not take offense) this line …. stepped on the harbor>>> dock >>> stepped on to the dock. 💙
