Invitation to Photography: Silence

Welcome to the Abbey Photo Party!

This is a (somewhat) new experiment and sort of a twist on the regular Poetry Parties.  Instead of my selecting a theme and image and inviting you to respond with words, I select a theme and invite you to respond with images.

Our theme here at Abbey of the Arts for September is silence, so I invite you to reflect visually on what silence looks like for you.

Since you can’t post images directly in the comments section here, I invite you to add them to the Flickr Group I have created (when you go to the link it will ask you to join the group first before posting).  Please do leave a comment below to let us know you have joined the party and feel free to link back to your own blog and post your image there too.

If possible I’d love to have them all in the Flickr group as well (joining Flickr is free)!  Share as many as six of your images in response to the theme. Feel free to take your image(s) in any direction and then if you have a blog, please post the invitation and encourage others to come join the party!

On Friday, September 7th – I will draw a name at random from those who participate and send the winner a copy of my newest book Desert Mothers and Fathers: Early Christian Wisdom Sayings — Annotated & Explained straight from SkyLight Paths.

I will also feature some of the photos here at the Abbey blog sometime next week (with permission of course).
