Usually, when I wake up on Thursday mornings, I can count on seeing a post in my Reader from Sue Vincent at scvinent.com. It’s her Thursday Photo Prompt challenge and Sue always provides one of her beautiful, interesting photos to serve as inspiration for us. It is Thursday, isn’t it?
But unless I totally missed it, Sue didn’t post one of her #writephoto challenges this morning. Yikes! Egads! Where is she? I hope she’s okay.
I was feeling empty inside, so in a desperate search for inspiration for a photo Challenge to use this morning, I Googled “random photo generator” and found this site. The site says, “Use the image as a subject for a free-writing exercise.” Best of all, these images are free and are available for unlimited use.
So, I decided to use the image above for this post. And here’s my random photo tale.
Nothing these days is simple, is it? Everything seems to generate controversy and the taking of opposite sides.
In what was intended to be a drive to beautify the city, a member of the city council proposed engaging two “urban artists” to paint colorful murals depicting the multicultural aspects of the city on the sides of various buildings around town.
But not all members of the city council were receptive to the idea. One argued that it would encourage graffiti to be painted on walls all across town. Rather than beautifying the city, it would ruin it.
After a heated debate, the city council decided to allow the urban artists to paint a mural on one wall as an experiment. Once completed, all members of the city council, the mayor, the chief of police, and other selected dignitaries would decide whether the mural was art or graffiti.
What do you think they decided?
