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 43 picture is a grouping of stone landmarks know as “inukshuks” or singular an “inukshuk”. They are stone landmarks or cairns built by First Nations)FN) people of the northern Canada and used originally as navigation elements that would stand out on a frozen landscape. They are also to mark sacred locations of FN peoples.
What is this? Scott said as he was looking through the pictures his friend had taken on his trip to Canada.
What do you think it is? Asked Phil
“I don’t know buddy, to me, it looks like a get-together of people, who turned into stone!”
“Look the big guy in the middle looks like he is their boss and the little ones all around him are the minions. No disrespect intended!”
Scott was amused by Phil’s flight of fantasy.
“These are stone structures made by the native people as landmarks. We were amazed by them as many are very very old”
“That’s great then, you got a lot of cultural education on this trip of your to Canada and its historic locations!” Said Phil.
