Fun for Friday: Architectural Images?

| October 23, 2020

This week’s images are mostly based on architectural things, except maybe that last one. The first image is a tall, slender white building atop a hill. The structure of the building looks as though it is twisted in a counterclockwise direction when facing it, and it gives the impression of a unicorn’s horn emerging from […]

Fun for Friday: Three Images on a Theme

| October 9, 2020

For this week’s Fun for Friday with images, I’ve got three images that sort of fit together better than some might. The first image is a lone figure in a small boat on a fairly calm body of water with a gray sky and another boat in the distance that is following a small wake. […]

Fun for Friday: Possibly Linked Images?

| September 11, 2020

This week, I’ve got three photos that I can see an easy link between. But you might come up with a different way of looking at them! The first photo is whitecaps on a bit of ocean. The second photo is a person who is out of focus climbing a natural rock wall along a […]

Fun for Friday: Another Set of Images

| August 14, 2020

Three more images for your writing inspiration! The first image is a very low to the ground shot of a blacktopped road with bright yellow double lines down the center. In the distance are mountains and a blue sky that seem to be in a desert environment. The second image is a silver skull-shaped ring […]

Fun for Friday: Some Interesting Images

| July 24, 2020

This Friday, I’ve got some interesting images to inspire your writing! The first image is a person with gray short hair wearing black and white sugar skull-like makeup and a black shirt, holding an upright bass guitar partially in front of their face. The second image is a purple-tinted cloudy sky with power lines to […]

Fun for Friday: Three Visionary Images

| July 10, 2020

Today’s image prompts are all inspired by the word “vision.” The first image is of a blue “telescope” of the sort that are often found near scenic viewpoints, where you can insert coins to have a more binocular view of a distant point. But in this case, the “telescope” is upside down in the image, […]

Fun for Friday: Three Fantastical Images

| June 12, 2020

Three fantastical images today for your writing inspiration! The first image is from a Cirque du Soleil performance, and it involves one performer in a green bodysuit contorting themself into what looks like a growing plant, while a person in the background plays music. The second image is a closeup of a lotus flower, which […]

Fun for Friday: Hearts and Sunsets

| May 15, 2020

For this week’s Fun for Friday photo prompts, we’ve got a mix of hearts and sunsets. The first photo is a pink heart on a black background. The right hand side of the heart is transforming into zeroes and ones. The second photo is a person with long dark hair, wearing a hat and scarf, […]

Fun for Friday: Dreamy Images

| April 24, 2020

Today’s three images started with the word “dream,” and they somehow all ended up being things in the sky. The first image has a soft pink sky with a pair of floating islands, one larger and one smaller, connected by a bridge. There’s a large earthen hoop holding up a crescent moon shape, with a […]

Fun for Friday: Three Images for Inspiration

| April 10, 2020

For this week’s three image collection, we’ve got a couple of stars in space, with the background in black and magenta. We’ve got a silhouette of a cat sitting on a tree branch with a blue and purple starry background (and there are some leaves or maybe birds flying away from the branch). And we’ve […]
