Microcosms 106

Greetings, everyone, and welcome to Microcosms 106.

Microcosms 105

Another Friday, another year… Welcome to Microcosms 105, the first post of 2018. Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you all had a great festive period.

There is simply a photo prompt below – no character, setting and genre elements and no slot machine. Let your imagination run wild…
