#105 - The Photograph

The prompt for this week is: Photograph. (Or you could shorten it to photo.) Describe one, take one, or show us one! Talk about what seeing that picture meant to you or use the prompt to create a character. Who is in it? What are they doing? Why does that particular picture matter? When people have to decide what they would grab in a fire, after living things they nearly always say photographs. Why? And what is so special about that one?

this was an archived one, but one i immediately thought of because no other photograph has ever captured me more. short story based on a stunning gregory colbert photo.

I've always intended to write something about this photo, which has haunted me for a long time. Thanks for giving me the impetus to begin typing like mad!

Some mild nostalgia prompted by an old black & white photograph: back then in ca. 1959

Sometimes, it's the viewer, not the photograph, with the story.

This is not my photo, so decided to write mirror nonets on wishing it could be and why.

Okya, mine includes two photographs, and it wasn't exactly inspired by the prompt. But my main blog is something of a photo blog, so I couldn't resist the chance to link to this weekend's post.

My contribution is my photo study of mailboxes in Maine. However, just below that is Angus Bosio. You'll see what I mean.
