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 45 picture is pretty much as it appears. Although, perhaps not the most dramatic in terms of subject matter, I thought the picture as it looks, has a wealth of potential and could literally go in a thousand different directions.
Empty bench in an empty park
Where are the children that used to play here
Where are their elders who sat here watching them
It’s the same everywhere, deserted parks and malls
Once busy streets are silent and forlorn
Schools and offices devoid of people, vacant
Where is everyone?
Worry not, they are all safe, sequestered at their homes
Staying away from public places and crowds
Finally, they have learned the wisdom of protecting
Themselves and others by being sensible and cautious
