  6. What a terrific idea, Sara - I'm with Tanita in loving the poem photo in particular for its color and composition.

  7. Glad you guys liked the idea. I just felt like something completely different today.

    jama: I don't know. I love them all. And I've written in each of these genres. What's funny is that I had a very, very hard time imagining myself writing a novel after so much time writing short stories, essays, and poems, but now that I have, well...I'm addicted to the long form, too. And I'd like to try a play. What photograph would that be?

  11. I love this. Fits well with my thoughts on beauty, don't you think?

  12. You continue to awe me, Sara!

    I'd most want to read the short story ... that shot raises some great questions ... How did that pad get pink? How does it feel about it? How do the others feel about it? What does the future hold for the pink pad?

  13. As the photographer, I have to say I am so intrigued at the interesting ways people, especially writers, interpret a photograph. I especially like the comments at the end here about the lily pads. I am loving the idea of the photograph asking questions, rather than just telling a story. Thanks Sara for bringing a new perspective to my passion. Jacquelynn
