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 200 words or less. Careful editing will keep your words within the confines of the 200 word limit. 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.

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. A few of the stories have been going way over the limit. Please try to keep the stories within the 200 word limit.

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 everyone else can enjoy it as well.

The main object is to have fun.

  1. Hi Al, and anyone else who reads comments here.
    I took this photo at the home of an elderly couple I know here in Medville. Elderly means older than me, they are both well into their eighties. They are from Marseille originally, and are fascinatingly old-fashioned. Their furniture is the same, the photo shows some detail from a sideboard, and they have a Welsh dresser and an oak dining table which seats eight people comfortably.
    A different world.

    1. I thought it was a design on a wall or something similar. This being on a sideboard shows the meticulous detail that used to be put into furniture.
