A Week’s Worth of Photo Writing Prompts

Do you ever get bored of traditional writing prompts? Let your sense of sight stimulate your writing!

Here are 7 pictures with brief captions. The rest is up to you…

  1. The quotation on this mural reads: “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”


  1. Hmmm… Someone had a long night. Or maybe he is homeless? Is he dead? How did he end up here?


  1. This is a tunnel leading into a tiny town called Matfield Green, KS (or anywhere, for your writing’s sake). Whose house is that? Who is traveling through the tunnel?


  1. Old ruins at Harpers Ferry, WV. Harpers Ferry is a very historical place and the site of many Civil War battles. . .


  1. This overlooks the small town of Harpers Ferry, WV from the Appalachian Trail. What kind of people live in this humid town?


  1. This place almost looks mystical. Is it from a different world? Are there unicorns?


  1. An unlucky creature. What is it? Who killed it? Is there a killer on the loose?
