The Crowds Below

The Crowds Below

Today’s visual prompt is a shot I took on top of the Ferris wheel at the last Vegoose at Sam Boyd Stadium in 2007. What a great festival! I really wish they had been able to bring it back in subsequent years, however, the recession put the kibosh on that. I’m hoping it’ll come back eventually if we ever get COVID under control.

Anyway, here are some ideas to get full use out of the prompt:

  1. Write about a character going to a music festival.
  2. Write about a character’s fear of heights but conquering them (or making them worse) on a Ferris wheel.
  3. Write about a character losing their family in a crowd at a traveling carnival.
