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 41 picture is a forty gallon drum full of old golf clubs. Lynn took this picture when she went on an outing to a local salvage yard with the camera club from out town.
“Honey, I cannot find my bag of golf clubs, any idea where it might be?”
Steve asked his wife. He was getting late for his weekly meet-up with his golfing buddies and couldn’t find his clubs anywhere.
Just then his phone started ringing. It was Matt, “sorry Steve, I’ll have to cancel today’s game. I seem to have misplaced my clubs”
Steve stared at his phone in a perplexed manner. He thought he should tell Jeff that he was running late when he saw that Jeff was calling him. ” I am sorry” Jeff started to say and Steve interrupted him, Don’t tell me that you cannot find your golf clubs,” he said.
“How did you know? ” Said, Jeff.
“Because both I and Matt are also facing the same problem. I think something fishy is going on! Let me check” Steve told his friend. He then went to the living room where his wife was talking to someone on the phone.
“Do you happen to know anything about missing golf clubs? “
Jane suppressed her giggle and said innocently that she had no idea where they were.
Meanwhile, the garbage collector was surprised to find so many golf clubs in the recycling bin the next day!
