Quiet Contemplation

or possibly a good spot for a sniper…

  1. An amazing picture. And I totally agree about the sniper position. Although I would need a shooter’s pole to take a good shot from that seat.

    I wanted to ask you if you would mind if I reblogged some of your photos on my writing site as inspiration material for writing prompts. You have a great eye and this picture and many others that you have taken give me all sorts of ideas for stories. I would ensure that you are given full credit and a link back to here included. If you aren’t comfortable with it I completely understand. Thank you for your time and for your blog.

  2. Reblogged this on A Side Of Writing and commented:
    Sometimes the inspiration for writing can come from the most interesting places. I found Simmons Burrow’s blog a while back and have checked back frequently because of the amazing photographs he takes. These stunning works of art can make full fledged stories erupt into my mind or help give me that boost I need in a scene that completes it.
    This picture is one that has so many different ways it can be taken. Like Simon says, it could be quiet contemplation or a great sniper position. What does this picture make you think of? What story could be told just from this picture? Who put the chair there? Why? Where is this secluded spot?
    Today’s writing prompt is all about using a photo as the starting seed for your story. Give it a good look and then go let your imagination run wild. After you are done head over to Simon’s blog. If you think this picture is good, it is only the beginning.
