Thursday photo prompt – Eye – #writephoto

Sue Vincent's Daily Echo

#writephoto

Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt. If you know where the photo was taken… please keep it to yourself until the challenge is done 🙂

Throughout the week I will feature a number of the responses here on the Daily Echo as space allows. Every week, a full round-up of posts will be published linking back to the original posts of contributors.

You can find all last week’s entries in the weekly round-up. Please visit and read the stories and poems and explore the sites of their writers. I feature as many contributions as I can on the blog during the week, but given the volume of contributions that may not be all of them!

Use the image below as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)

#2 SALUBRIOUS They are out of season, but still it is worth  reminding about health properties of figs that are great as dry fruit as well. 

#3 EARMARKED – feel free to interpret it the way you like. It does not have to be literal as in my interpretation. (Thank you, Rina!)

#4 INFLUENTIAL – Here is a great mural in Barter Bookshop featuring some of the greatest minds of their time.  I didn’t resize the image so that you…
