Story Inspiration: It’s all in the embrace

There’s a great story in this picture. It has me wondering… Are they friends? Lovers? Is this a first date? Is it their first embrace? Were they just arguing? Laughing? Are they falling in love? Do their families not approve of their relationship? Did they just get engaged? Decide to have a child? Move in together?

I love the way these kinds of visuals always lead me to a story idea (or loads of ideas!).

Story Inspiration: Lost in Thought, Time Together, and More Story Prompt Photos

Here are some new photos for my story inspiration series. Any of these images give you writers out there new ideas? Do these pictures have you asking questions? What are these people thinking? Why are they together? How long have they known each other? Why are some of them alone right then? What’s on their minds right then?
