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.— Kay, Alberta, Canada
If this isn't the first, just forget it, O.K.?
Mine is rather depressing, I'm afraid, but it's what popped into my head!
Yeah, mine's a downer, too. : (
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.
just perfect timing...
So is mine! It must be the heat.
Hmm. This is a good, yet tricky, one for me. I promise I'll have something up. On Tuesday, for sure!
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.
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!
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".
very cool pic willow...
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.
My head keeps nodding, ready to fall over onto the keyboard but I was determined to post a little earlier this week (1:30 am). Thanks Tess.
..i like that photo and rusting effect... thanks Tess for the inspiration this week!(:Have a nice magpie to all!(:~Kelvin
Love that composition!
There is still life (pun intended) in this picture despite the rot!!
It's all a matter of perspective.
I had a little fun with this...
Just a terrific image!!
Tess, you mentioned your photo series 'Abandoned America' .... fits well with what I am doing in the Midwest!!
I wasn't sure what it was and then it came to me ...
I loved your poemand loved hearing you read it
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!
Something a little different, this week.
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'.8^)
that was really fun!
It brings memories of my grandparents' farm in western Nebraska.
I had a hard time with this one, but suddenly - the inspiration came from the past!
This was a toughie!
Off on a tangent here....
I'm so tired-I'll be reading others and commenting tomorrow.
Hi Tess, I enjoyed this one :)
Hmmm . . . interesting.
Hey Tess,A tough one...I liked the pic very much!
I really LOVE the image. Thanks for this Tess.
This was a different take for me - but thanks for the prompt, since it helped me stretch myself a bit. ☼
Still intrigued by this. I had to redo my link, to get the right page up for all. Good prompt!
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.
'Monotony' is up. Love the picture. Knew exactly what I wanted to say but am not sure that I did!
Hello everyone, have just posted my poem up. This is my "maiden flight" with this great group!
tess i dunno why but when i saw the image i felt compelled to riff on america . . . . steven
This gave me quite a good inspiration so I wrote something about it. I had fun!
a very nice blog you have here.. :)
O.K. here's another one.
Sorry Tess, theme dodging again!
Love the blog and the inspiration.
Happy Friday Maggies! I was not sure exactly what this was either, but I just went with my imagination. :o)
this was tough! enjoyed being able to come up with something.
I've missed you all....glad to be back....thanks for all the wonderful prompts Tess! :-)
Two weeks in a row. Starting to be a habit again. ;) Thanks Tess for the great prompt!
the windmills of my mind are lame this week (that is both the title of my magpie and the truth!)
What a refreshing picture thanks!
I just couldn't keep away... got up extra early Sunday morning to "play". Thanks for the ever inspiring photos.
