I’ve been thinking a lot recently about the puzzles of perception – about how much of what we see and think we comprehend is influenced by our own state of mind. Not all other worldly apparitions are truly ghosts, after all.
I took this photograph at the Scottish Storytelling Centre in Edinburgh and still don’t understand quite how this image was formed, but I find it rather beautiful, and particularly apt for the setting.
Make the explanation for this the basis of your story.
If you write something prompted by this image and idea, I’d love to know. Just send an email to Judy(at)socket creative.com. You could end up published on SkyLightRain.com!
