Daily Prompt: Imagine All the People

by michelle w. on September 5, 2013

The next time you’re in a public place — a coffeehouse, a park, a store — observe the people around you. Pick a person, a couple, or a group, and imagine what their lives might be like.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us IMAGINE.


I am not feeling good today. After having a tooth extracted on Monday, I am having a session of good old Neuralgia. The inflammation of a nerve bundle in my face, and it hurts like hell… So I am in no mood to even talk today.  It hurts too much… so, I am going to go with the Photo Challenge- Imagine…

  •  Imagine I did not feel any pain today…
  •  Imagine the Church Fete of this weekend is already finished, and it was a huge success…
  •  Imagine I could pack my Bike, or Pick-up on Monday, and just leave for the sea. Any sea. The nearest one. The furthest one…

A few years ago I was invited to Kareedouw on Route 62 for an interview. As I sat waiting for my turn to go before the panel, I drove the few kilometers to the sea. It is a wild coastline there. I saw this photo today in my archives and started imagining- maybe there is some big fish in places like this…

IMG_0060The church at Kareedouw. Imagine what would have happened if I were called to go there in 2007, what would my life have been like now?

IMG_0039Maybe it would not have been so easy. Next to the church is the grave of John Balthazar Vorster, one of South Africa’s Prime Ministers during 1978-1979… dark days in our history…


  • Imagine what South Africa could have been without all the negative politics. ( or ANY country for that matter… 🙂 )
  • Imagine a world where people really loved one another
  •  Imagine a world where every child was safe…
  •  Imagine a world where every woman was loved and respected…
  •  Imagine it is time for some more pain medication… they say in Wikipedia some marijuana would help for the neuralgy– I can’t begin to imagine where to buy some, even though most school children know…
  •  Imagine I did not just publish such a lot of crap…

  1. Imagine if governments focused on the people they are elected to care for instead of their own self aggrandisement. I post this on the morning of Australia’s federal elections and hope the elected government is a government for the people of Australia .
    Gods blessings on all.

    Great shots and sorry to hear about the pain Vos. That is not good and wishing for it to get better real soon and just imagine if we can just climb into the photo’s we like – like some sort of teleport device. Now that would be great! LOL!
