  1. This looks like a very difficult one. I'd better get busy on it. I have no idea what it really is, so I'll just go with what I think it might be.

  2. If this isn't the first, just forget it, O.K.?

  3. Mine is rather depressing, I'm afraid, but it's what popped into my head!

  4. Yeah, mine's a downer, too. : (

  5. Ha! I hadn't read any of yours, and mine's depressing too! Must be the rust...looking forward to reading these. Funny how this pic inspired me, but "easier" photos did not.

  6. So is mine! It must be the heat.

  7. Hmm. This is a good, yet tricky, one for me. I promise I'll have something up. On Tuesday, for sure!

  8. Heaviness was in the Dublin air, lingering, loitering, and the spriteful thoughts of effervescent clover dancing, cannot penetrate the onerous, inexorable need for the human spirit to breathe, to shake off the tepid heat tantrum--and so our poetics, so far, have a sharp edge, just baleful blades slicing the nothingness of solar undulations, where libras linger, where flares rise like silent screams from behind our ears.

  9. Trying to figure out how Lane got to be first! "The first shall be first and the last shall be last"...or make me last or make me first...I know there is a quote somewhere. BTW I love the photo..who is the photog? Do you know him and where exactly is this amazing pic taken (I hope Ohio somewhere!)...Thanks!

  10. The photographer is Skip Hunt, found in Google Images. Wish I could say I had taken it myself; it goes along quite nicely with my series of photos "Abandoned America".

  11. Wow, what a trip, what a ride. This time the corners of the windmills of my mind surprised even me.

    Our entry is now up and posted.

  16. Tess, you mentioned your photo series 'Abandoned America' .... fits well with what I am doing in the Midwest!!

  17. I wasn't sure what it was and then it came to me ...

    and loved hearing you read it

  19. I view him as a windmill of sorts. Any picture with blades is welcome in this awful, humid heat..... *she's says as she sits in full blast of a huge desk fan* it helped nurture my entry, actually!

  20. Something a little different, this week.

  21. Tess -
    Great photo by Hunt.
    Did a little research on him and he's shot other remarkable photos.
    And wouldn't you know - he has a collection called 'Skip Hunt: Vagabond'.

  29. Still intrigued by this. I had to redo my link, to get the right page up for all. Good prompt!

  30. Been thinking of this and my days listening to a windmill out of my window. And while I gave it all my attention I think I must have called up a storm. We got an inch of rain today and thunder and lightning. I could almost hear the squeal of the rusty gears.
