  • About the challenge: Each Tuesday I will provide a photo prompt. Your mission, if you choose to accept the challenge, is to tell a story in 280 characters or less. When you write your tale, be sure to let me know in the comments with a link to your tale.

    Round-up 🙂

    Dutch goes the Photo!

    Welcome to the 151st round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

    Thank you for a truly amazing set of Sunrise posts this week! With each new dawn, there were more gorgeous photos and great posts to enjoy. The variety of approaches showed off your creative touch, and I really enjoyed reading each and every one of them!

    A big thanks for your effort and I hope you enjoy each other’s posts!

    Here’s a sunrise from a number of years ago…

    Sunrise over Warfield Ridge

    As my wife and I were in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, I decided to take the opportunity to get some early morning photography of the battlefields, before tourists would descend upon the locale. The power of these locations around dawn is palpable and left a deep impression on me.

    The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

    “That proves you are unusual,” returned the Scarecrow; “and I am convinced that the only people worthy of consideration in this world are the unusual ones. For the common folks are like the leaves of a tree, and live and die unnoticed.”

    The photo for this week’s prompt was taken in the grounds of Waddesdon Manor on a beautiful summer’s day, when the rose garden was in bloom. The Manor is the ‘big house’ in my village and draws visitors from across the world to see the artworks it holds, from portraits of Mme Pompadour to the Sleeping Beauty series in the tower. The gardens are spectacular all year round and include both wild and formal areas. Of the formal gardens, this corner is my favourite as it holds a collection of old-fashioned roses that fill the summer with colour, bees and perfume.

    Thank you so much to everyone who took part this week. I really appreciate everyone who has taken the time to create their own story from these prompts. I…

    Putting My Feet in the Dirt

    Wow!  I’m honestly wondering if we have a new record for the amount of prompted posts done this month.  Thank you to all of you who participated.  I truly believe that your writing gets better every month.  A lot of your stories have taken me by surprise, many of which I think should be turned into full-fledged novels eventually.

    Here’s my favorite post of the month.  https://malandally.co.uk/2019/01/29/slipping-through-the-seams-there-was-no-turning-back/ Written by, When I think of something snappy.  Aka, Elder Shredder (Who also writes for Prompted).  There are some really great posts on his site and this story was just amazing to me.  So go take a look if you haven’t had a chance to read any of his work.  I think you’ll be amazed as well.  😉  ~M
