Light and Shade Challenge Wednesday 27th May 2015

Image
Welcome to this week’s Light and Shade Challenge!

Every Wednesday we put up a new Challenge.  There is a picture, a quotation and a 500 word limit.  The Challenge is to take whatever is sparked by the picture and/or the quotation, however tenuous or remote the connection, and see how much fun you can have in 500 words.  We never count the words.  The main thing that is important to us (Lyssa Medana and Thomas Marlowe) is the fun.  You have until midnight GMT Tuesday.

Here is the picture prompt.  Please credit if you show it on your blog.

Instead of the quotation I would suggest that you imagine a smell of food. I can't link to a smell but I suggest that you imagine the smell of fruit, or spicy food, or bread cooking. Whatever is sparked off by that idea.

Here is the quotation.
Actually, instead of a quotation, I suggest you think about the sound of rain.  I've found a couple of YouTube clips, here, here and here but you can remember your own experience of rain or look for ideas yourself.  I hope that adds to the fun.
