I love this photograph. Stories lie withing it's frame. Many stories.
Back when I was teaching middle school English one of my favorite things to do to get kids writing on their own was to show them a wonderful picture. Sometimes it was a photo, sometimes it was drawn, painted, or even a sculpture of some kind. Then...I let them write. I gave them nothing more than a visual to begin their journey. This photo is that kind of photograph. It begins a journey that is different for each and every individual who takes in the image. It is yours.
Completely and totally yours.
You own the image.
I challenge you to write something. Maybe a few words, maybe a short story, or, if you are really ambitious go ahead and start that novel. Let the image take you away and encapsulate you. Let it become a part of you and seek out all that lies beneath it.
