I have mentioned in the past how much I like black and white pictures. You won’t hold it against me if I present you with another one, will you? The following, is a photo taken back in 1920, in Athens from a neighbourhood directly beneath the Acropolis.

Imagine being a peddler in a similar cart, selling your wares from street to street. What would a peddler’s life be like? What manner of different people would they come across? What hardships, would they face? What would the bond be between the man and the animal (horse, donkey, mule)? What would happen if the peddler was to lose the animal? Place yourself in his shoes and write a story, or change your point of view to one of the residents in the areas he crossed daily. Experiment, let your mind roam free.
