Today’s #PictureOfTheDay and #writingprompt: 10/Sept/21

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

If you use 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, please credit me 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.

From time to time, I’ll include something I’ve written, inspired by the image.

History Haiku

Who through this portal
passed and moved into regions now
lost to memory

If you want to see more of my pictures, you’ll find some in my Gallery and more beyond.

        1. Sign of municipal parsimony, I suspect, Lynette. It’ll have been placed there either by the local area authority or perhaps the university department responsible for exploring the site. Neither organisations are noted for their excess, I’m pleased to say!

  1. It probably was a beautiful door when it was new, a hundred years or so. I found the workmanship of the beveled corner interesting vs the two different lengths of decorative wood framing. Unfortunately, I saw no small brass padlock! Thanks for posting.

    1. The padlock’s on the right hand door, Brenda, just below the break in the central bar. The door is probably somewhere around 900 years old, as it’s on an ancient Roman ruin.
