WritePhoto # Bandstand

KL Caley is the host of WritePhoto

Welcome to the weekly #writephoto prompt!

A bandstand (sometimes music kiosk) is a circular, semicircular or polygonal structure set in a park, garden, pier, or indoor space, designed to accommodate musical bands performing concerts. A simple construction, it both creates an ornamental focal point and also serves acoustic requirements while providing shelter for the changeable weather (well we certainly have that in the UK)!

Will this little prompt provide music to your ears?

For visually challenged writers, the image shows a green bandstand in a park. Nearby is a long building with windows overlooking the bandstand.


Cathy and her two boys were having a great time. The walk in the park, followed by hotdogs from the vendor near the gates had put both the boys in a boisterous mood. They were running, joking, and laughing with real pleasure.

Cathy was glad that they had come out today despite the prediction of rain. After her husband, Rob had passed away at the beginning of the year, they seldom went out or had fun. It was time to normalize their life.

Suddenly a big fat drop of rain landed on her face. The boys shouted “rain rain” and Cathy took their hands in hers and ran towards the bandstand to seek shelter. Just then a man, carrying a briefcase also sought shelter there. They were soon talking about the weather. He also engaged the boys in conversation. When the rain stopped, and she was leaving, the man introduced himself as Bill and asked for her phone number.
