Take a Picture! – Silence

Wordsmith Studio Logo Banner
Welcome to Wordsmith Studio’s Weekly Photo Prompt! 

Every Thursday we’ll post a new topic for your photographing pleasure.  When you get a good shot (or three, or five) post them to your blog, website, Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter. Then come back and post a link to your photo(s) in the comments.

This Week’s Theme is: Silence

What does silence look like? Everybody knows what it sounds like, but what does it look like to you? What places do you imagine are silent?


Take a Picture!

Show us what silence looks like to you!!

If you don’t like to take pictures, grab a pen or your computer and write a poem, flash fiction story, or memory about silence.

Got Ideas?

Do you have suggestions for future “Take A Picture!” posts? Leave us a comment, or email us here.  We ♥LOVE♥ feedback!

Be sure to check back next week for more fun and new inspiration. Also, watch for a collage of “Silence” photos taken by our contributing members!!


Happy Snapping and Photo Fun!

      Wow, Dana! You are quick this week!

        It took a couple minutes because silence is pretty much unknown to me, but I got creative!

      That’s amazing, Dana. It is such a creative take. Love it.

      Poignant. Love your photo Dana. There’s something poetic about the simplicity of your picture. May your heart heal.

    Silence: The hay has been cut, raked, and coiled into bales. Now it waits.


    (I took the picture last year, but I saw the same scene this morning and knew it fit the prompt perfectly!)
    Thanks Becca!

      You’re a multitasker! You could do the poetry AND photography prompt each week. Love your submission.

      • June 4, 2013 at 4:24 pm

        Possibly! 🙂

    Here’s my submission. Trying out Google+ for my photo prompt. It takes you to my page. https://plus.google.com/u/0/114364224641585742014/posts?partnerid=gplp0

    I’m not a photographer. Just a photographer wannabe. My camera of choice- a point and shoot camera. 🙂

    I didn’t have time to get it together the way I wanted to so I just posted a pic on the WSS facebook page. I think it is interesting how we each thought of silence in a different way.
