Best 1000 Words for the Image Contest

Note from the Editor-in-chief, Marilyn L. Davis:

The idea that a picture can convey what might take many words to express was voiced by a character in Ivan S. Turgenev’s novel Fathers and Sons, 1862: “The drawing shows me at one glance what might be spread over ten pages in a book.”

But, is a picture always worth a thousand words? Not necessarily.

So, here’s the challenge for all of Two Drops of Ink’s ~ Cat Lyon’s Reading and Writing writers and readers.

.

Capture the Image Using the Power of Words

 

 

 
.

Many times, an image is captured without a backstory, and that’s where the writer has the advantage of using their words to give us context for that still photo.

 

.
As the writer, you get to describe the picture. But it’s got to be more than just a park bench in autumn, regardless of how beautiful the leaves are. Show us how this park bench gave relief to the elderly couple who walked that path for twenty years or sat forlornly waiting for the bulldozer so the city could have another parking deck, or how this bench and all it stood for united a community.

Now I See It!

Do you see how those words add meaning? See how those words evoke a feeling in the reader? That’s the power of words and images combined.

Let’s have a contest to see if the words don’t carry the message better than just the image or create a memorable story from a picture prompt.
