Dinnertime : Daily Post Photo Challenge


I love food! When I saw this Daily Post Photo Challenge I went straight to where I keep my foodie photos of succulent and attractive food and then I took a moment to think a little and remembered that the place where we eat and the dining room itself are also very important.

Here I think, is an example of a dining room that spells romance and intimacy at the table. Of hushed tones and cosiness. That evening we had a wonderful evening  with friends but it is also the dining room itself that remains in my memories.

This photo was taken at the Prestonfield Hotel in Edinburgh.

    Wow! This photo is stunning and the dining room is breathtaking. Perfectly romantic, and magical. Have you considered submitting this photo to Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers to use as a prompt? Seriously, I’d love to see what stories your gorgeous photo can inspire!

        Let’s see if it’s chosen and it will probably be scheduled later!
