Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 51 – An ever growing pile

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 youwhat emotion; feeling; memory or whatever it may be – what does it arouse in you and to share it that with others.

We seem to have a theme going on here. Our Week 51 picture was also taken at the local salvage yard not far from the “old homestead.” The photograph pretty much is as it shows, although it has been edited heavily in terms of colour and texture.


We live in a disposable world
Don’t need anything, throw it out
Piles of rubbish are growing higher every day
We buy new tech and get rid of older models
The need to acquire new things blind us
To the piles of rubbish that are growing higher
The value of item lessens as the are replaced
And without a thought we toss them aside, unwanted
Beware, the pile of rubbish is growing higher every day
And we have to be careful, it doesn’t drown us under it

          1. That’s good to know. Post covid, most of these dealers were forced to close their shops because of the constant lockdown spells. I don’t know when they’ll open and start functioning like back in the old days.

              1. That’s great! We’ve got a place like that too but it’s closed off.
                Here, the government has been very strict due the increasing cases. Only essential shops are allowed to open, and that too from 6am to 10am only.

    1. Thanks Kate. That’s so true. In my country, we do reuse almost every thing. We sell old phones, appliances and cars. The concept to throwing stuff is not commonly practiced here. If we cannot use something, there are many who will take it and use it.
