I Challenge You To…

Here’s this week’s photo prompt challenge. Where is the staircase? Where does it lead? Who is going to walk up or down it? Let your imagination go:

Last week saw you with two photo challenges. Here’s the first:

Here are your wonderful creative words:

Val Fish:

The guests have all gone, and I’m sitting on our bed, our wedding photograph in my hands.
I brush my fingers across your face, imagining the taste of your lips on mine, wishing I could have just one last kiss.
I close my eyes and I can see you standing at the altar. I remember you turning your head and smiling and my nerves simply melting away.
I hear the music; ‘How Great Thou Art’; I sang it for you again today, were you listening?
I chose freesias for you today my darling, just as I carried in my bouquet all those years ago; their sweet perfume so evocative.
I go to the wardrobe and fish out your old scarf, wasn’t it only a few weeks ago you wore it last? I hold it to my face, feeling the softness against my cheek.
I drink in the faint aroma of Paco Rabanne.
Pieces of you, keeping you close.

And here’s the other photo prompt:

    Hi Esther. I missed last weeks one, for some reason it didn’t show up in my reader. Oh, well, I have caught up with it again now. Here is my short story based on that great staircase.
    All the best

  4. That was a powerful and beautiful piece written by Val Fish. It made me feel quite teary and emotional. 🙂

    Not sure where I should post my answer to the challenge with the staircase. I sent Tallis Steelyard off to deal with it
