Competition - A Fifty Word Photo Story



The mayor of our small town has become obsessed with the Olympics. Children have to sprint everywhere. Trains stop down the line so commuters have to pole-vault or long jump aboard. And at council meetings, dressed only in swimming costumes, the politicians are learning to synchronise their actions to perfection.

What a fabulous image...politicians in swimwear. Loved it.

With some politicians, it's a better image than others! Thanks, VOnetal.

I don't know that there are many of our politicians here in Australia that I would want to see in swim wear - lol! loved the story.

Very amusing, Sarah.

Thought you should know that a flash of mine from your 'Your Messages' project last year has just been picked up by a magazine.

And a fifty word flash I posted on your blog and later beefed up for another competition has just gained an honourable mention.

Nice things.

The photofit pictures have been posted up all around the country in warning triangles. The main assailant carrying the stolen goods is depicted as followed obediently by his female accomplice. Despite the police spokesman's claims to the contrary, it seems unlikely that they will be identified from these flawless images.

I meant to say also, Sarah, how you have reminded me to turn to political events for inspiration. If it's good enough for Duffy ....!

There’s an increase in the number of signs on the streets. Helpfully telling him what to do and how to do it. They’ve begun appearing in Bartram’s home, too. Scrap paper with her writing on. ‘Your dinner’s in the oven!’ The exclamation mark to tell Bartram how to read it.

Graham didn’t mind the road signs saying ‘turn right’ and ‘straight ahead’, like instructions that were easy to follow. Indeed he wished there were more signs in his life, tattoos on her body, telling him how fast and which way and where not to go. She was difficult to read.
