Weekly Photo Prompt: “dials”

Welcome to my weekly photo prompt!  Every Monday I will share a photo which I like, and taking it as a starting point, I’ll endeavour to come up with a piece of creative writing.  This might be a 100 word story, a poem, haiku, limerick or longer piece – I’m not setting any rules apart from committing to a regular writing challenge to exercise my brain.  If you like the image I’ve shared, please feel free to use it as a prompt for your own work, give me a pingback and I promise to read and give my feedback.

The photos I use will be either my own or taken by my snap happy husband, so you have our permission to use them for the purpose of this writing prompt.  If they aren’t our own photos, I will only use them with permission and credit them to their source.

Unfortunately, this Monday I have just returned from a rather fabulous holiday in the Netherlands, which inspired me to write a whole other blog post. So to my shame I don’t have so much as a haiku or a six word story yet for this week (although I’m pleased to say I have done 5 loads of washing today and have only one full basket’s worth left!)  However, here’s this week’s photo, which I’d chosen before the holiday. If you’d like to use it as a prompt for a piece of your own creation, please do – and send me a pingback! In the meantime, I will get my thinking cap on and come up with my own take on it just as soon as I can!
