Over at DV we have a semi-regular feature called "Through a Lens Darkly" where we post a (hopefully) evocative photo and then ask people to write a short piece (1,000 words or less) inspired by it. Our publisher Katherine chooses which story gets posted. The new one is up now, so if you'd like a little writing exercise, bop over and take a look.

The photo we're using is this:



I just love Flickr and that ol' Creative Commons license!. You should take a look at the photographer's website; he's based in northwest Wales and has some absolutely gorgeous stuff.

...because only here can I sit looking stuff up on Wikipedia and suddenly have the sound of a bagpipe come drifting in to my office.

Explanation: The high school team in Glendora is the Tartans, and they have bagpipers with their marching band. Someone across the street is obviously practicing with the start of the new school year, but I just think it's cool. I love bagpipes. It was also sort of funny because I had JUST started reading up on Wales in prep for my Snape fic when the bagpipe music began full-throttle. I know bagpipes are Scottish, not Welsh, but it was still a fun bit of synchronicity.
