This post is part of the April A to Z Blogging Challenge, where I am challenging myself to reflect on other A to Z posts that I come across.
A to Z Challenge: J is for Junk (#AtoZChallenge)
I agree that junk can make for good pictures, and this post reminded me of some screencaps I took a couple months ago of… some Buzzfeed list, probably. The reason I saved them is because seeing them made me think of my fantasy novel, set sometime after our modern world collapses and magic replaces technology.
Okay, not all of these are technically junk. But it’s all “stuff we don’t want any more, stuff that probably doesn’t work anymore, or we don’t need any more, or is stained or broken.”
These are the footprints we will leave, for better or for worse… and someday, someone is going to think they look really interesting. If that’s not a reason to incorporate things like this into my fantasy setting, then what is?
