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.“
Our Week 48 picture is a dock/boardwalk that is submerged due to high water levels. The shot is from the Bat Lake interpretive hiking trail in Algonquin Park. Bat Lake(in the picture) is a naturally occuring exceedingly high acidic lake, in which little to no life can survive.
I feel overwhelmed by life at times
Like the water is rising, going above my head
Things that are important, vital to me
Are submerged under the overflowing river of doubt
This doubt is flooding my life and eating away
At my confidence, my trust in my own abilities
I need calm reflection
To sift through the debris that floods bring
And save what is necessary, and let the rest go
