The older you get, the more you realize that the way you look is a reflection of how you treat yourself.

Six Word Story Challenge – Poverty

Are you up to a challenge? A challenge where you will need your imagination, a photo and a lot of only six words?

During the next two weeks I am searching for stories about POVERTY. In only six words! Let a photo or image inspire you to write a story. Or first write the story, and then make or search for a picture to go with it.

SixWordStory

Such a strong story and unseen images in only six words…

Every two weeks on Wednesday I will post a new theme for this Six Word Story Challenge. Publish your Six Word Story on your own website/blog and paste the link to that post in a comment here at Figments. I will include your contribution in this post, forming a list of stories.

Will you join me? Will you? Say you do 😀 And share the challenge news!

Have fun writing,
Marion

The next challenge will be posted on Wednesday, March 13.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Reflections

This week’s WordPress photo challenge is guest hosted by Jared Bramblett.

Reflections. This challenge is about using reflections in the composition of a shot. Reflections are all around us, whether they’re in a window, a puddle, a mirror, or another surface. They can dramatically affect the feeling and mood of a shot by creating a surreal sense of duality. Think of a city reflecting in a river, a crowd of people reflecting in the glass pane of a building, or a landscape altered by the placement of a simple glass mirror.

I challenge you to head out and create an image that uses reflections to force the viewer to question and interpret the reality of the shot.

Because of this last sentence, I simply had to choose this one:

Travel theme: Liquid

Liquid can be mirror-like, translucent and tranquil,

or massive, bubbly and alive. Like our minds…
