From today’s prompt.

 Water: A source of life. A place of recreation. A calming presence, but also a destructive force.

How can you tell a story with water?

CarmelbeachpicelementsWho is that person? Is this a man, a woman, a child?  Why are they there? Who is the other chair for and why is it empty? How long has this person been sitting in that spot? What are they thinking? Are they waiting for someone to arrive? They are looking off to sea, has someone disappeared? Are they just wishing, wanting, hoping for someone to join them?

There are endless stories this picture evokes.

I could let you in on the real one, but that’s not as much fun as coming up with one of your own.
