Today’s #PictureOfTheDay and #writingprompt: 03/Sept/21

These pictures are here to entertainment, bring joy, and, if you wish, inspire you to create something with words or images. Whether that is a poem, story, play, novel, memory, essay, painting, drawing, sculpture, or another photograph is entirely up to you. But don’t feel obliged: you can simply enjoy the pictures. I’ve deliberately left the image untitled here to avoid directing anyone, but, if you feel the need to know, you’ll find the original with its title, here on my Picfair site.

If you create something from the pictorial prompt, I’d love to know. You’re welcome to post a link to your work in the comments section, or the work itself, if you wish. If you use my image in your own work, I’d appreciate a credit in the form of a link to this post. That way, more people will see both our creations.

The idea here is to have fun and get our work known as widely as possible.

New to my website? Here’s the history of these daily picture posts. I began the series at the start of the Covid pandemic in the UK, to give pleasure in the outdoors to people confined to their homes by illness. Once the infection rate calmed here, I continued it simply to spread joy and pleasure. This new direction seems an obvious move for me as a writer who gleans as much enjoyment from words as from pictures.

From time to time, I may include something I’ve written, inspired by the image.
If you’re interested, you can view more of my pictures in my Gallery or beyond.

  1. I initially thought that there is snow on the right of the photo, but then realised that it’s water with the light shining on it. It’s not just the eye of the beholder, but the eye of the beholder’s geographical context!

    1. I can see exactly what you mean, Lynette. Human eyes are often fooled by light falling in odd ways. It’s one of many aspects of our perception that makes crime scene witnesses so unreliable!
      This was taken during the summer in Paris, so unlikely to be snow!
