I spent last weekend in Philadelphia. Late afternoon Friday found me in a historic structure shooting portraits. Can’t wait to share some of them.
Saturday, it was up early and shooting the TriRock Series Philadelphia Triathlon. Great fun.
After downloading nearly 1,000 image files, processing some, and grabbing some take-out sushi, I was ready for a little wander time.
I parked near the Philadelphia Art Museum, and for about three hours, just wandered Center City with my Fuji (and my Canon Rebel film.)
It felt good to back in one of my most favorite cities. If I weren’t so tired from the day, or the fact that I had to be up and out at 5:30 a.m. Sunday morning, I would have wandered deep into the night.
On the way back to my car, I caught this scene. I like it. It’s almost Hopper-esque, if I may be so bold to say.
There’s a story here. Real or imagined. I wanted YOU to give me that story.
Write a 800-1,000 word flash fiction short story centered around this scene. Set it in Philly, whether you know the city or not. Send it to me at email@example.com as a Word document, include your name and location and any websites you want links to.
