What’s the Story?

Here’s the idea: I want to see how various photographs inspire the creative storytelling of different viewers. These can be sentences (one or more), poems, short stories, etc… They can be original ideas or stories you are reminded of when you see the photograph.

Whatever comes to mind, you be the storyteller!

You may be familiar with the ways in which photographs have told the sociological stories of different people, as shown with various documentary work. However, with this project, I’m more interested in using photographs to inspire creativity in the viewer, from a fictional basis.

Ideally, I’d like to do this as an ongoing project, even using photographs others submit to me. It will on depend on interest and participation. So if you’re reading this, you’re invited to contribute!

Here’s the first image:

Be sure to share your ideas in the COMMENTS section of this post, or for longer stories email me and I may share your story in a future blog post!

I look forward to seeing what you come up with.
Thanks for participating,

  1. She strode away in anger, refusing to truly look back no matter what the cost. Her mother had always told her that to look back was the equivalent of saying she was sorry; she was never sorry.

    She thought the man behind her looked familiar. He was the same man who kept looking at her in the coffee shop, and shadowed her in the bookstore. His hat brim pulled over his face made him more of a mirage than an actual person, but his presence could be felt throughout her body. The hair on her neck couldn’t be fooled.

    Anna became increasingly concerned about the foot steps so close behind her and yet invisible. She quickened her pace, hoping to make it to the cottage before they caught her.
