Lynne Ayers of Beyond The Brush Photography invited me to take part in the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge. Thanks, Lynne! The challenge is to “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”. Day 3:
The day after my grandfather died, I did not go to work. I got in the car and took a trip by myself- my wife being out of town. I drove over 100 miles south east to Kingman AZ and from there, took Route 66 on a photo expedition. At that end of the old highway there are only a few broken down buildings and old signs. But I did get one or two shots that I like. This is one of them. I was trying to find a link, a connection, to my grandfather and this photo. The name of the motel is El Trovatore. In Italian, Il Trovatore meansThe Troubador.
My grandfather could not sing!
So now I’m supposed to invite someone else to join in the fun. That’s easy, I nominate Torrie of A.PROMPTreply. No obligation, Torrie!
