Grain Dear WordPress

Dear WordPress,

I don’t feel particularly inspired by your writing prompt today. It’s not like I didn’t think about the prompt – really, you must believe that I did.

I thought about writing on the grain of the cloth of a garment but it seemed so boring. Then the whole grains of sand came to mind but that seemed too obvious. I then thought about food and posting a recipe of a grain dish like a quinoa salad or something, but that sounded like too much trouble this evening.

So I defaulted to the obvious (for me) – a  grainy photo of one of Kalk Bay’s steep staircases. It wasn’t taken that way – it was edited with Snapseed – Grainy Film overlaid with Glamour Glow filters.

I hope that tomorrow’s prompt is a bit more exciting!

Yours sincerely,
