Notebooking Daily Exercise July 16, 2014

July 16: You've got a little Ekphrasis on your lip there.

Today we're going to look at a selection of photographs of unusual architecture by artist Filip Dujardin and imagine what it would be like to live or work in one of these buildings. For added fun, live in one and work in another.

Bonus exercise: In the link about Ekphrasis on poets.org the author discusses briefly W.H. Auden's poem "The Shield of Achilles" and describes a setting that will be the basis for a story or poem: "A plain without a feature, bare and brown, / No blade of grass, no sign of neighborhood, / Nothing to eat and nowhere to sit down" what happens is completely up to you.
