Writing Challenges: Inspiration and ideas to spark your creativity every day

Visualization is how we form mental images. It's how we see images when we read poetry or prose, how we can "see" spatial relationships in stories. In photos or art, these relationships play similarly important roles. Is the space vast and expanding? Is it delicate and personal? Distance or closeness of an object in a photo influences how we interpret or interact with it. However, in photos we also have to think about the shape of those spaces. Does this space have hard lines? Does it fade in a haze? All of these elements communicate something different. For this challenge, look around for basic shapes that are either geometric or organic. Organic shapes are more free-flowing and unpredictable, while geometric shapes are more structural and well-defined. Your photos can also have a combination of geometric and organic shapes. Post them! [Challenge created by Erin Bundock, YWP alumna]
