It Starts With The Photo

It starts with the photo. Or photos.

Curious as to why I had this on 'writing' instead of 'pictures', so am I. LOL!

My point is, pictures can serve as good writing prompts. Prior to me writing this post, I went through the recent and not so recent photos in my mobile phone and edited and saved those that would be sources of inspiration to my posts. I spent a good fifteen minutes going through each photo. Tomorrow, I'll do the same and look through the photographs in my camera. What is curious though, when I start taking photographs, my second thought is 'This photo will be a nice accompaniment to my Persona Paper post!'. Of course, like with the bits and pieces of stories, essays, and what not in my journal, I have yet to use any here in Persona Paper. Must be the procrastinator in me eh?

So yeah, here comes my posts inspired by photos.

It often starts with a photo for me too. I have been known to search randomly for a photo and when I find once which interests me I will write a post based on it.

I may have to use this method when my ideas run dry. Who am I kidding? I am out of ideas more often than not. lol

I love using photos as inspiration and I don't do it often enough. They are often a great prompt and I've found that they can lead to other ideas that have nothing to do with the photo..lol.

I'm waiting to see those. It's amazing where a good photo can lead.

I agree. If the photo is appealing, tendency a lot of people will read or even visit the post.

I seldom upload pictures though some pictures do inspire me to write.
