Weekend Photo Challenge: Daryl Edelstein

Hello dear Toads, and pond visitors. It's Fireblossom here in the driver's seat with your weekend photo prompt! This time, it is my distinct pleasure to introduce to all of you a very dear friend of mine, Daryl Edelstein. She has two blogs: On the m104: Out & About In New York City, and Through My Eyes, which is a more general photography blog. I just know you're going to love her work as much as I do, and find lots of writing inspiration!

So, if I can have your attention...

it's time...

to stop and smell the flowers,

listen to the rustle in the trees,


maybe even hop a fence or two,


peek in a window,



go down a flight of stairs,


and see the city, through Daryl's camera lens!


But, be careful,


follow the rules,


and watch out for strange creatures,


because I want you all home before dark


and all in one piece!


Oh, one last thing...


you've been Darylized!


Here's the challenge: write a poem inspired by any of these photographs of Daryl's. Be sure to give her credit for the photo you use, then link back here to Toads and sign the link! Simple Simon. I'm looking forward to seeing what all of you will write!

I am, as a friend once malapropically said, 'knocked up' by your choices, I love them, I mean they're some of my favorites ... and I am looking forward to seeing, er, reading what these photos inspire .. thank you all .. this is very exciting for me

Fireblossom said...

I'm stoked! Mine is up...a fine (I hope) bit of snark.

Thank you to Daryl for allowing us to use her wonderful photographs for our weekend photo prompt this week!

Margaret said...

How fun is this and I love her perspective with a camera! I've got a busy horse clinic weekend, but this is something I must squeeze in!

All these images are wonderful. It was hard to choose! Thank you for sharing this talent!

Really enjoy these photographs--though I don't know how Daryl got my dog to hold still for a bath in that picture. ;-) Looks just like her. Anyway, mine's up, a cascade poem, a form I haven't played with in a long while, that seemed to suit the image of clock after clock in the third pic.

Oh, this is wonderful. I've loved Daryl's New York photos for years. She has such a great eye. But for some reason I haven't seen her lately, so I'm just going to have to follow her blog.
Thanks for the reminder. Now to choose a photo. All Daryl's photos are inspirational.

Fantastically talented photographer and a great prompt, Fireblossom. One suited what I had just written tonight - but it isnt a serious effort. I shall try to return and do Daryl's work more justice.

Jira said...

That was a great deal of fun... I always enjoy picture prompts... so much so that I used three of them. :)

Grace said...

Margaret said...

Really enjoyed her photography! I finally posted mine and will be back later tonight to relax and read the others.
