Last week I decided to participate in WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge. This week, WordPress neglected to post a theme. As we eager bloggers stood around grumbling about having to wait, one enterprising blogger (cobbies69) suggested we use “Waiting” as this week’s theme.
I selected this photo, shot at MacAlpine’s Soda Fountain in Phoenix because the wait from the moment the waitress set this hot fudge brownie sundae down in front of me, to shooting the photo, to finally digging in, seemed interminable. Well worth it though!
A Thousand Words is a photo prompt posted on Sundays. Maybe the image will inspire you to write a short story, a poem, or a blog post. Maybe it will send you straight to the frozen food aisle at Safeway. Whatever your response, I hope the picture inspires you to some sort of creative zen.
If you write something based on the image, feel free to share a link in the comments section. Also feel free to use the photo on your blog, just be sure to give proper credit, which I will always include in the post or the caption.

I love how we all decided to just post ~ never mind wordpress! I followed the first two bloggers I saw this morning, and went with Random and Alone 🙂 http://radicalamazement.wordpress.com/2012/02/05/weekly-photo-challenges-random-and-alone/
That looks so delicious!! :). Great photo. And great inspiration tool.
That captures “waiting” perfectly–great shot.
A family of five would have problems eating that whole thing. Wow.
