Just in case you fancy a go, here's a quote from my book Leave Nothing But Footprints that I'm giving you permission to include in any cento you may decide to create.
"The action was frozen a split second before the water found its target."
I picked that because I think it could be used in various ways. That's not the case with the paragraph I got just from opening the book at random.
"As Jess made a pot of tea, Eliot said, "I'm going to impress you even more now by showing you the advantages of HDR." As he brought up five images taken inside a church they'd photographed earlier in the week, he explained that by combining over and under exposed images he could capture all the details in the shadows without burning out highlights in the better lit areas."
It's hard to see how you could use that in anything other than a work involving photography. You'd probably be able to leave out the campervan though.
Did you know a cento was a thing? Would you like to read or create one?
