#WRITEPHOTO – Door by pensitivity101

A sweet entry by pensitivity101

Agnes was fascinated by the door in the wall.
Whenever she asked where it led, she never got a direct answer until her aunt came to stay.
‘Ah,’ she said that sunny afternoon.
‘The door goes to wherever you want. It can be a garden, a castle, an island, a forest, anywhere that takes your fancy. You just have to believe.’
Agnes pondered over that for the next hour, and as her aunt sat comfortably in the gazebo with her afternoon tea laced with scotch (that no-one was supposed to know about), she decided to try it out.
Dressed in sensible shoes and a light coat, Agnes walked down the steps and was just about to try the latch when the head gardener bellowed across the lawn
‘Where do you think you’re going, young lady?’

#WRITEPHOTO – Door by Tessa Dean

An intriguing entry by Tessa Dean – what’s behind the door?

Walking along the outer stone wall we wondered what was behind it. The wall was too tall to see over and so we kept on walking along the outside and eventually, we came to a very small door. My husband Troy and I wondered what was behind the wall, but the little door was too small for us to go through. We wondered if it would even open. Troy played with the door latch and finally got it open, but we still couldn’t see what was inside as there was a wall a couple of feet inside the door and it blocked our vision.

Fast of the mark this week was this great entry by inkdrops:

The humble door…
protector against the winds and rain
coming into the house
constructed from parts of a sturdy noble tree
and secured with locks and bolts

#Writephoto Round-Up – DEN

Places of childhood dreams
A palace full of wonder
Made from leaves and branches
A place to hide under

My cousins, siblings and I were always building dens when we were younger, mostly inside ones (are they dens or blanket forts? I’m sure we called them dens back then). It is amazing how many fun hours we would spend with our creation.

#Writephoto Round-Up – Lamppost

Agreeing to meet in the dark was a mistake. Meeting under the lamppost had sounded safe, however, in reality, that meant she was standing in the light surrounded by shadows. The leaves on the trees and bushes rustled menacingly. Every animal call made her jump. Why did she always have to show up early? She checked the time, still a few more minutes. What if he was late? Maybe she should just go, maybe this was a bad idea. As she deliberated, a shadow approach. As he stepped out into the light, she knew he was worth the wait.

I would be amazed if anyone knew where this photo was taken. On a visit to Pickering Castle in Yorkshire, we passed by a small sign for a Grade 2 listed building and garden. We decided to explore.

The Friend’s Meeting House is a small stone building, set back from the road and not obvious to passersby. It dates from 1793. It is surrounded by a beautiful secret garden with a turf maze.

The grounds are open until dusk and visitors are welcome to sit on the seats and enjoy the peace, only disturbed by the occasional whistle from the steam railway below.

The place is a spot of tranquillity and I would recommend anyone passing to seek it out.


I hope you enjoyed my 99-word short story. I’ve had so many wonderful responses and enjoyed each and every one. I have tried to reblog a few since the post went out so hopefully, you will have seen some of them trickling through, but here is the list below (if I have missed anyone, please let me know). It makes for fantastic reading.

#WRITEPHOTO – Lamppost by Tessa Dean – Author

Foul play in action, captured by Tessa Dean – Author:

Cathie watched in shock as her sister, Anjolie, and Mark, the man who was supposed to be her fiance, stopped at the opening in the walkway next to the lamp post and shared a passionate kiss. Anjolie pushed him away but didn’t stop him when he went to kiss her again.

#WRITEPHOTO – Lamppost by Marla’s World

A perfect day by Marla’s World:

In the morning mist they walked side-by-side.
He would speak in a low voice, but his friend never replied.
Man and his best friend, the ever faithful dog – love amplified,
Daily they would stroll down the rocky path, lungs and soul purified
For the air was filled with hope and renewal in this little town on the sea-side,
Small and close-knit, greetings to and by everyone was happily supplied.

A hilarious entry by pensitivity101:

Finally.
Someone has come to cut the hedge back and I can do my job properly.
This is a popular route for dog walkers and school kids.
Nothing worse than trying to illuminate a pathway when you’ve got dense foliage in the way. Can’t always blame it on a failing bulb.
Hello? Who’s this?
Aha! A maintenance man!
What’s going on?? They’re tinkering with my insides!
That tickles!
