I love to take pictures. I’m not a professional, not even all that good as a matter of fact, but I still like to snap away. After downloading some from my camera, I got to thinking that pictures can be a means of prompting ideas, of giving you a visual way of thinking of something to write. With that in mind, I thought I’d post a Sunday Visual Writing Prompt.
This one was taken back in November. I live in central Texas and usually we don’t get much of a winter, let alone a Fall. This past year has been a heavy drought for us, though. Between the drought and some cool weather, we had some beautiful changes in the foliage. This is a normally green tree in the back yard. I was shocked to look outside one day and see this. It’s had some red leaves before, but this, for us, was spectacular. It reminded me of the trees I saw in Vermont while at the Vermont Studio Center during my residency there.
Perhaps it will inspire some ideas in some of you.
Happy Sunday Visual Writing Prompt Day. And, of course, Happy Easter.
