A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.
Hi everyone! It’s Pat here – the new MLMM’s Photo Prompt host.
I’d like to take a moment to thank Yves for offering me the chance to host this prompt, which has a particular and personal meaning for me; I’ll explain in a moment.
And I’d like to offer my thanks to Neekneraj for having been such a great prompt host in the recent past. I’m sure everyone who has been participating would agree, he discovered some real treasures and visual eye feasts, challenging our imaginations! So thanks again and I’m sure I speak for everyone, wishing you good luck with your book writing endeavours – and I hope you might pop in from time to time to perhaps respond to a prompt.
Right – before we jump right in, I’d just like to take another few minutes to let you know why I’m really excited to host this challenge, although after spending some time back scanning through MLMM’s archives …. well, don’t I have quite the task before me!
Most people don’t know – but I come from a Creative and Fine Arts background – I studied both Fine Art Photography and Professional Commercial Photography – and have always been very visually “hyper aware” of places, spaces, people etc. Now, call me a dinosaur, but I know photography, pre-digital era – when I was studying, it wasn’t exactly the case of glass plates and volatile emulsions that kept blowing people up – but there was absolutely nothing even remotely on the horizon that would indicate the turning of the tides from film to digital.
So, in the here and now, where just about everyone, from the youngest of the young to the oldest of the old, has possible access to a digital camera – well let’s just say I’m waiting for the announcement from some high-tech company saying they have done the first “finger digital camera implant” …. you get the picture …. no pun intended. This incredible availability has completely changed how we, as a society, record, document and create our histories, stories and art. We can be sure of everything and completely nothing … and this is fascinating to me … but perhaps another time.
So, shall we get to the prompt?

Where does your imagination lead you when you look at this fascinating portrait?
Let your creativity bubble and stir, the winds blowing through the leaves in your minds … run free and most importantly, have fun!
Share your thoughts – poems, prose, flash fiction, short stories etc. If it inspires a visual creation of your own – be it photograph or other visual medium – please, share.
Remember – if you use the image directly in your responses, please, credit the artist/photographer.
I’m really looking forward to reading your responses.
Cheers and happy creations ~ Pat
