Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 44

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 youand to share it that with others.

Our Week 44 picture is pretty much as it looks. A disposable masks tossed into a snowbank. Over the past year, we’ve literally come across hundreds, if not thousands of these types of masks simply discarded and tossed into trees and bushes or dropped on the ground.


Someone was here!

The discarded mask meant that he wasn’t alone here. He must be quiet and keep to the shadows.

His boots crunched on the snow and there was a movement at the farther end near the trees.

“Will, is that you?”


She came forward from the shadows of the trees and he could see that it indeed was her. She was alone.

“Yes, Will it’s I. Jack told me that you had come to the hut for a few days. I wanted to meet you to see if we can work things out someway”

His mind went into overdrive. Why would his brother tell his ex-girlfriend where he was. It looked like a trap.

“Are you by yourself? How did you get here?”

“Why so many questions Will? Yes, I came alone. I drove here. What’s going on, are you in trouble?”

The belligerent tone of her voice reassured him that it was okay. He stepped up to her and invited her into the hut.

Whatever it was that she wanted, it wasn’t his life. The rest he could find out.

    1. Thanks Angie! I see them everywhere, in my home my husband just puts them wherever he likes. It’s my job to get rid of them.
      The story just came to me, I’m glad you liked it.

  1. I see masks on the ground all the time. I lost mine on a jog today. It was an expensive one and the loss distressed me. It is hard for me to juggle sunglasses, cell phone, water, car keys, and a mask as I perform functions like taking a drink, answering the phone, unlocking the car door. Only later do I remember I am missing my mask. So people like me are causing part of the problem

    1. I do see them around a lot too. I remember when at the start of the pandemic, masks were hard to come by and we had to pay a lot of money to get the disposable ones. Now they are easily available and people are discarding them everywhere.
