Today’s #PictureOfTheDay and #writingprompt: 06/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. Lovely Stuart. Don’t you wish sometimes you could ask people to step aside while you take your picture. I am so happy that you and Valerie have been able to travel and enjoy so many breathtaking sites. Thank you for sharing. Sending hugs to you both always. 🤗🤗❤️

    1. Thanks, Joni. Countless times I’ve wished for a spell I could use to cause people to vanish for just long enough for me to take an uninterrupted picture, but other times, I’m happy to include them. And, as you’ll know, patience is an essential quality for a photographer. Wait long enough and a gap will open up, allowing a shot without intrusions.

      1. Oh so true. When you are in a famous area it is almost impossible. You don’t want to lose the opportunity all together. I am a lousy photographer when it comes to people. It was still a lovely day and you captured a lot of people having a wonderful time. When you really blow it up it is interesting to look at the tourist. I always blow my favorite photographers work up. I exam the work. Have a wonderful week my friend. Hugs Joni
