What do you think of when you hear the word rain?
It probably depends on the circumstances and your mood. We all know that rain can be an uplifting thing or a disappointing thing, a weather event that ruins your plans or a welcome gift to relieve drought.
Look at the following photos. All five depict rain, but they each have a different “feel” to them.
In your Writer’s Notebook, do a quick write in response to the pictures. Spend two minutes writing about each photo and its depiction of rain.
Do you find a difference in tone (your attitude toward the topic) and mood (the feeling your words create) depending on which photo you are responding to?
Think about the power of images as we continue with today’s lesson on using images in posts.
