When I was a teenager I had a subscription to Life magazine. I loved looked at the photographs of people and places from all over the world. It’s amazing how differently people live. Even here in the US people can have really different experiences. Think about living in Alaska where in the winter you’d have 6 months of darkness. What if you lived in a beach community in California or the deserts of New Mexico and Arizona?
Go to http://www.nationalgeographic.com/ and click on the photographs tab. There are several categories. People and Culture, and Travel are the ones I want you to focus on. Select one and write a story based on that picture. Be creative and have some fun!
