    1. Hi Tess
      good to be back with this picture prompt but your linky still does not like me.
      Here is my offering

  2. Nice visual prompt but I am not linking in even through I wrote a poem. I have not ever had word verification but obviously a bunch of your followers do not like approval of comments. I do not like playing in unfriendly pools.

    1. You are wrong but it's your choice. Don't forget this is for fun and we all have very busy lives besides this! Tess tries to visit everyone's writes and even though I have had a few times with no visitors it can take some time to get noticed in this talented group. Think again.

    2. Ditto, Bekki. As a serious blog-hopper and veteran online community member, I don't think members are unfriendly. And I don't know a writer who doesn't like comments but word verification or other hoops simply to comment isn't very welcoming if not literally prohibitive. Let's not forgot that many readers these days are actually reading from other devices which make it difficult to comment. I just got a cell phone and while I can read many sites, I can't comment. The add comment button doesn't work so while I am reading and enjoying a work, there are times when commenting isn't an option. Lastly since we as writers are no longer posting works to a single community where we can read and comment at a hub location, the act of blog hopping itself is time-consuming. I believe most members do they best they can to support one another.

    3. Sorry you feel this way, Jacqui. I find this to be a very friendly pool. Come on in...the water's fine!

  5. when it comes to the apexes of iconic memory, cobblestones have always occupied a special niche; many thanks for picking an image that dredged up delicious delirium & fascination.

  6. Enjoyed this image. I love NYC. Kind of picture her like Grizabella in "Cats." No matter how old she grows, she has a unique and street savvy beauty all her own. Thanks for the great image!

  15. Tess, this is such a lovely, romance laced photo to begin this week straight to our hearts. She is a talented photographer, that offers a look inside us all, if we dare to look inside her work.
