For a number of years now I have participated in something called Silent Sunday. On Silent Sunday (every Sunday for me), I post a photo that I’ve taken in the past week that tells a story through the image. I include no words, hoping that others take a close look at the photo, letting a story emerge in their own minds.
Sometimes the image provokes a conversation on my blog or social media. Other times I’m not sure how the photo is received. I can imagine using Silent Sunday photos as writing prompts for my students (although I haven’t up to this point).
So for this Slice of Life entry, I submit my Silent Sunday photo. Although I’ve included all these words to explain the process, I will not provide words to accompany the image…I will leave that up to you to interpret! (I’m happy to engage further through blog comments or social media if the image provokes that response.)
Here’s my Silent Sunday and Slice of Life Challenge entry for today:
Bless you for this! What a beautiful tradition – Silent Sunday! Makes me want to post a photo, too. Fabulous.
Please do! It is a fun tradition…and honors a different kind of story once a week. 😊
What a fun tradition and prompt for noticing, wondering, and thinking! Have you seen Worldless News? Your post reminds me of that…http://wordlessnews.com/
Thanks for sharing Wordless News–I’ll be checking it out!
That sky is absolutely gorgeous. My favorite daytime sky. This is a cool idea!
I love the idea of this- I’ve never heard of Silent Sunday before. Definitely want to try. I applaud the person who had the creativity to make a Mister Cactus Head and leave it for passersby to enjoy!
I love your Silent Sunday pics… I would love to walk along with you on a photo walk… I just got a new mirrorless camera… and I don’t experiment enough with it…
I drag my camera along with me most of the time–I know that otherwise I wouldn’t use it. My next step is to venture past the automatic settings!
I’ve heard of this before, but I haven’t done it myself. I’ll have to give it a try!
Your Silent Sunday post takes me back to Tuscon and the desert. Fond memories.
Haha! Mr Cactus Head! Softens the spiny cactus. Sort of changes the whole image I have of these plants.
I look forward to all your photos; I love your #silentsunday, although I’m not as regular as you are! But today… https://flic.kr/p/2fejkb6
