Challenge: Find an old photograph. It can be of you, your parents, your siblings, your grandparents, first dog, favorite aunt, your old house or neighborhood...any photograph that you are fond of or that evokes nostalgia. Then, write a caption essay that captures the essence of your photo.
Your caption essay should include who, what, when, where, why and who. Your stories should open a window into the past. Be reflective. Take readers on a journey of discovery. See amended rules below.
