Sunday Photo Fiction -A Moment Frozen In Time

Every week a photo is used as a prompt to create a story in around 200 words. As it is short, it is sometimes referred to as “Flash Fiction”. If you want to have a go, then head over to the page HERE, and if you want to read the stories others have written, then take a wander over HERE.

Winston leant against the window, cupping his hands above his eyes so he could see in without the light casting reflections. Nothing stirred inside; no person, animal or even a particle of dust. The display was called “Frozen in Time” and, according to the brochure, the whole building stood outside of time claiming to be “between seconds, or breaths, or both.”

A man stood in the corner leaning on broom; a cat about to leap through the air; a woman looking over her shoulder as she starts to remove her blouse; a Tyrannosaurus Rex lunging for an Edmontosaurus; a woman pointing a gun at a melon. He shook his head and walked away.

Bart looked in the window and smiled at the Frozen in Time diorama wondering how they managed to keep things steady. A man in the corner brushed dust from the floor; a cat leaping through the air; a woman allowing her blouse drop to the floor; a Tyrannosaurus Rex chewing on an Edmontosaurus; a bullet about to hit a melon. He smiled and walked away.

Sierra looked in the window, and stepped back, feeling uncomfortable as everything seemed to be looking straight at her.

Photo of the Week 2016 – Week 17

I was supposed to post this on Saturday, but once again my laptop blue screened and things happened. I really need to replace my memory. Need to replace the memory in my laptop as well. Repeated crashes on Monday caused me not to be able to post, but I did find one of the problems and hopefully that is fixed now and the laptop hasn’t crashed in nearly 24 hours. Fingers crossed it stays that way.

I went for more of an action shot this time with the yachts out for the first time this year.

How To Create A Pingback

I was asked on my Sunday Photo Fiction Blog by someone how to do a pingback, so I thought I would create a post on it with easy to follow images. Or at least I hope they are easy to follow.

Creating a pingback to someone else’s post can seem hard, but it is one of the easiest things to do. I am going to create one to my Sunday Photo Fiction blog.

I will start by typing the writing that I want to use as the pingback.
