Play It Again Sam!

The prompt or challenge this week for nanoljers was to take a picture, accurately describe it in 5 sentences, pick another picture and do the same thing.

I found that I really couldn't be accurate since everything was conjecture. But I found it somewhat liberating for my thoughts to just be able to describe something. Some of the pictures I looked at before choosing these two made me think of captions. One of my writing boards used to post a picture and ask for captions to go with it. I had forgotten how fun this was!

I picked this photo: http://www.fotosearch.com/PHD569/aa051866/
This family is going on a picnic.
The family is returning from a picnic.
The dogs are taking their owner for a walk.

Her life partner is dead; the son misses his dad.
The dogs are following the scent of the boy on his bike.

The second photo is from: http://creative.gettyimages.com/source/classes/FrameSet.aspx?&UQR=cjvdmg&pk=4&source=front&lightboxView=1&txtSearch=people&chkRoyaltyFree=on&selImageType=1 I chose image # 200368897-001.
