Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt

Glen is the host of Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt.

He says;

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 15 prompt is fraught with peril…so watch your step. This is/was a rickety boardwalk which went over a wet and sensitive area, located at Torrance Barrens Dark Sky Preserve.

~*~*~

Hey look where you’re stepping

The path ahead is tricky and challenging

One misstep can lead you in a perilous direction

Measure your footsteps, take stock of the situation at hand

And always consider your own safety before charging head-on.

Week 13 was taken along a back laneway in the Town of Canmore, Alberta in the rocky mountain area of western Canada.

Not sure if this guy considers Week 13 lucky or not.

How long ago it was

That you said, you’ll be back

Was it a day or was it an hour

It seems to me that I have been

Waiting for your return all my life

Or in my death?

Week 11 was taken in Algonquin Park.

I don’t want to say too much about the shot. It’s pretty obvious it is a chain and a tree.

~*~

Do you want to chain nature?

Make it do your bidding and dance to your tune

Beware, nature is more powerful than your imagination

It will tear down the barriers you’ve build around it

It rules the land, water, and the sky

So don’t invite its vengeance upon yourself

~*~

The roar and the thunder of water falling into water

Carrying all that lies in front of it with force

Fascinating the beholder with its versatility

Water

It could be soft as silk or harder than rocks

It Gives life but can take it too

Glen is the host of LTPP

It’s time for Week 9.

This week’s is a really good one.

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 9 selection was taken just on the edge of Parry Sound, ON.

Parry Sound is part of what is generally referred to as The 30,000 Islands Region of Ontario. Why ? Well, there is just about 30,000 island in this area of Georgian Bay and this guy is standing on one of them. 

~*~

I am the king and this is my world

It may be minuscule but it is mine

The is no feeling comparable to this

Being the ruler of all that I see!

Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt – Week 7

is the host of this prompt.

(Lynn snapped our Week 7 on our recent Algonquin Park adventure. The setting sun and a still lake after an early evening Algonquin thunderstorm)

~*~

As I look at this beautiful view, it serenades my mind

As nature gently transforms the day into the night

The blending colors display the unmatched skill of the greatest artist

After the chaos of a hectic day, we are given this gift

A time when we can slowly unwind and relax

The tensions of the day seep away as the colors of the day

Darken into the indigo hues of the nightfall

~*~

Don’t close the doors

If you close the doors, there may never be a chance to learn and see new things.

You may feel safe when the doors are slammed shut against change and challenges.

But if you never peek outside, how will you know what is waiting there for you?

You may be comfortable in your abode, secure from all dangers but you are also shunning a chance to have an adventure!

So don’t shut those doors completely, let a sliver of light come in

Lynn’s Tuesday Picture Prompt # 3

Glen is hosting this weekly prompt

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.

(This picture of leaves frozen in a creek was taken back in 2018, at the McCrae Lake Conservation Reserve located not far from our “old homestead.”)

~*~

Held prisoners for the entire season

Frozen in place unable to move

These leaves under the ice wait for a new season

Temperature to rise, the ice to thaw

They will be set free to head in any direction they chose

We too are homebound and immobile held by fear

Cautioned against reckless behavior and told to be careful

We too are waiting for the season of fear to change

So that we can scatter in the direction of our choosing
