Wordless Wednesday photo: 115

2015 Allyson Latta


Each week on Wordless Wednesday, bloggers around the world post a photo they’ve taken that tells a story. I hope this one will bring to mind a memory or stimulate your imagination. Perhaps it will even inspire you to try your hand at some flash (very short) memoir or fiction, or a poem. If it does, please let me know!


Scroll through more of my photos here.

  1. Cheryl Andrews says:

    Simply delightful story, Allyson. As my eye scrolled through this inviting image, I saw the leash pulling at the hand, then the leaping dog and (yikes) those strappy heels! Extravagant gear for walking the dog. Thumbs up to her and to you for capturing this shot.

  2. Such action, such detail, such colours! Yes as Cheryl says, the towering heels immediately have something to say, as do the cross-strapped black bag, the cameras, and the frisky leaping dog! And of course the angle of capture. A delight.

    She couldn’t have been wearing better shoes for this shot. It’s what makes it, really. The dog pulling AND the shoes work just perfectly together. What a beauty of a composition! Teems with story. I so want to know more about Ms. Green Leggings.
