Each week a photo is used, donated by one of the participants of Sunday Photo Fiction, and the idea is to write a story with the photo as a prompt in around 200 words. The photo doesn’t have to be centre stage, there have been times when I have had to read the story a few times to spot where the prompt is hidden. Please include a mention and / or link to whoever donated the photo.

Careful editing is the key to keeping the story within the constrains of the limit. 200 words may seem like a lot, but it disappears quickly. The challenge makes you look at replacing two words with one, and a little jiggery pokery. A few words over is sometimes necessary when there is no way of shrinking it without losing an integral part of the story. Using a program like Microsoft Word or Open Office have a word counter so you can see how many you have used.

Once you have written and posted your story, please add the link to the inlinkz froggy icon below and add it to the collection so we can all have a read.

If I haven’t read your story by the time the next week starts, don’t panic, I will get to it. I can’t always visit every one in a week. Thank you for contributing though. Don’t stop as there are others who also like to read. And I don’t miss a story. Even if it takes me a week and a half to get to yours.

Any links that are not related to Sunday Photo Fiction
will be deleted so please don’t add them.

The main object is to have fun.

    1. Hehe yep. I remember when this photo was taken, it was so ironic. It was the day Felix Baumgartner went and jumped from the edge of space. Then the fy landed beside the space bar. I just had to take a photo of it. This was my “Edge of space”

      1. Irony is when the opposite of what is intended to happen takes place, such as a man getting killed when a safety barrier falls on him. The situation you describe above isn’t ironic; it’s a play on words. That the word “ironic” is so often misused is itself ironic.

      2. Wow — what a great story! Love those strange co-incidences that just seem to happen!
        Great photo — the responses will be very interesting and diverse. Haven’t had a chance to fly in on the others yet.
