Using the pictures below and without having any background knowledge about them, please write a descriptive glib showing, not telling me what you see. (e.g. Telling: “The dog is nice.” – Showing: “The dog’s coat of fur is as soft as silk. When he cuddles with me I am in a place of peace and calm.”) Use imagery (five senses) to get even more descriptive.
