this was a great photo prompt! Thanks Tess!
haunting photo, thanks, Joan Tawildpatience
Happy Magpie Monday everyone!
Thanks, Tess, I enjoyed that one, what a sad find.
Hello Tess! This is such an interesting prompt for it has opened a new shape for a sonnet i wrote many a year ago that i happened to forget along with the very first blog i made (now defunct..) Thanks for the inspiration and memories.(:Have a nice day!~Kelvin
Tess, thank you so much for this prompt. It is very meaningful to me. Funny, it inspired me to write about my father. I skewed all of the facts a bit. Facts such as 1. There was no other woman. 2. Mummy worked in London during the Blitz and had not yet met Pup. They lived long happy lives together. 3. He was however stationed at Chelveston. I have two scrapbooks of my mothers time working for the OWI (the US goverment propaganda wingfor the war) in London during the Blitz. Just like the men of war, she never shared a thing about her experiences. I never really knew that she was there. I know that I am meant to write a book about it.
I am very tired and haven't much time. Sorry.
I loved this prompt soooo much, Willow. Thank you ~
That price just kind of jumped out of the frame, striking a real chord.
What a lovely image, can only imagine her story. I actually own a couple of similar "homeless" photographs, long forgotten in an antique store, and too lovely to be lost in a pile of long forgotten images. I call them "adopted" family! Thanks for the wonderful prompt!
Love this prompt!
Great photograph ! thanks for posting-
I missed the challenge, last week. I hope I rose to it today.
Sorry I posted twice....used the wrong url the first time :~(A brilliant prompt ~ thank you.
I've double up, to save space...
Lovely woman, whoever she is.
This one wrote itself, Tess. Beautiful prompt.— KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
Loved this! I'm glad she is at home at the Manor! Very nice write.
Had to think this through, and still not sure I got it right!
Thanks for this terrific challenge!
Dear Tess,You know I can't resist playing around with your images ....
I participated by mistake! Here I thought I was being bad ass by stealing inspiration from your pic as posted on Willow Manor. Only to find out it was an officially sanctioned Magpie installment.
Oh, where did you find that photo of Latrice? I have been wanting to tell the saga of Latrice Williams for weeks! And now I have. Thanks for the prompt.
Still LOVING my visit up here in NJ with the MIL! Perhaps you can tell from my post this week! Don't worry-no plans for murder.
So I goofed in my post not really noticing the 1.99 on the photo. Hope I am not kicked out of this venue now.
I really like the photo.
thanks for the challenge! hope you guys like it...JJRod'z
Something tells me I've told this story before. But what the hell, it's good enough for a rerun.
Early this week! And I don't know why...prompt did tweak something...maybe a memory?
Tess, I had a lot of trouble with Google tonight, and although I commented on every submission up until now (midnight, Mountain Time) I suspect some of them didn't get through.Google kept wanting me to set up my own blog, promising me it would be free. Well, duh.So I just wanted to say this week's prompt was fabulous. So much real emotion came out of it.— KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel
Thank you for this week's prompt, Tess. There will surely be some great responses to that serene face.
Thanks for a great prompt Tess.Anna :o]
tess thanks for the great prompt. please forgive me for messing with the image. steven
Lovely photo prompt. Mine's rather cliched, I'm afraid.
Love this one Tess. I'm officially addicted to Magpies! Thank you.
For years I collected artificial relatives from antique stores. I said it was for the frames.
Quite a beauty! I'll be around to visit everyone!
Thanks for hosting this. Mine is strange, this week.
Lovely photograph; thank you.
Tess, I so look forward to your unique and wonderful photography prompts... I had to think about this one...
My first write-up over here. Such an amazing pic.Thank you so much for this prompt! :)
Friends, Nice image... I have tried to pen few lines on this...hope you would like...:)
My first time here...interesting image...
wow. i think i surprised myself this time.
had made me think twice before writing out a piece about her.. :)
A beautiful old photograph .. hope I did her proud! Great prompt, some great tales from this one.
this makes me sad to think of someone's photograph for sale instead of with the family.
Another winner, Tess. So many stories wrapped up in one photograph...
A beautiful photograph. I have been crazy busy all week but this photograph which bears an amazing resemblance to my late grandmother in her youth, has been haunting me. I so wanted to write something. Time didn't allow but today whilst I was cooking lunch I remembered the first poem I wrote after years of not writing. It seemed appropriate. 'But Do You Know Me?' is up and lunch is late!!
