30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 22

Alright, pushing on to the finish!  Today's feature photo is brought to you from... wait for it, wait for it...!  (Incredibly creative name, no?  But it is nice to sometimes find something called exactly what it is).  The quality there is excellent, and the price unbeatable (we knew that already, right?).  How excellent you ask?  Well, you are free to browse their categories (fashion, food and drinks, city & architecture, people, animals, objects & technology, and nature), though I wasn't super impressed with the selection (spoiled, I guess, looking at all kinds of quality photography sites).

30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 21

Wow, we're already at the three week mark!  (And incredibly, I missed the two thirds mark yesterday.  Incredible, except for that I do know myself a little, and a math-related fact like that is completely forgettable).

To celebrate, I will give you yet another Jordan Matter photo.

30-Day Writing Challenge: Day 20

I'll make this brief.  The picture is from Unsplash, taken by Tony Webster  (hailing from the oxymoronic Madrid, Iowa).  Have at it.

30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 19

So today I decided to try a new source for pictures: Morguefile.  There appear to be a variety of photos there, of varying quality.  While there are still some stunning options, there are also more amateurish/less spectacular to wade through.  Also, unless you modify/alter/change the picture, you have to credit the artist (not that that's a bad thing, but just to make a note of that, since that's buried in the terms and conditions you probably won't read).

So, I am happy to present to you this photo svklimkin (no, I don’t have any other name to credit him).

30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 18

As tempting as it would be to have recourse to the familiar picture sites I've used already, I thought I'd look at Gratisography.  The selection there includes plenty of interesting photos, many of them quite whimsical.  I chose  to start with something on the more moderate side.  Would love to see what you can come up with for this one!

30-Day Writing Challenge : Day 17

I'm sure I've said it before, but it bears repeating: the pics at Unsplash are amazing.  The panoramic vistas particularly, are steadily wearing on my resolve to not use pure nature pictures (the ambiguity as well as absence of human characters & actions decided me against them- at least for now).   But, there are a plethora of other fantastic options, so I hope you enjoy this picture from them, and find it inspiring for your writing.

30-Day Writing Challenge: Day 16

You know, I think these dramatic pictures might make me think harder but also more creatively for a writing idea.  They relate to common human experiences, and yet, demonstrate them with flair and their own distinct flavor.  So, I'll take the liberty of presenting yet another Jordan Matter photo.  I bring you: "The Dictionaryphile"
(Because we all just have those moments when we want to fall asleep with that tome of meaning;-).
