Photograph description assignment

Find a photograph that you like. This could be from a magazine, a photo
from your life, or from anywhere else, as long as it is school-appropriate.
Describe the photograph as if you were there. You may take on the identity
of a character in it or be yourself. Use sensory language appealing to each
of the five senses to describe the experience shown in the picture. It is
important to interpret your picture correctly, however, you can also be
creative and make up minor details as long as they fit with the context of
the photo.

Example:

Bicycle wheels flashed silver in the clear sunlight, whooshing gently along
the pavement below. Kermit, in the lead, felt the satin of Miss Piggys
gloves against his back, holding onto the basket just in case he managed
to slip, but his friend never let go. Through their open-mouthed grins, all of
the Muppets could taste hints of leaves and dew on the spring wind, the
sticky smell of Muppet fur drifting away.
