I’m taking a stroll through Rochelle’s Friday Fictioneers archives and found this photo contribution. Friday Fictioneers is a weekly flash fiction challenge to create a 100 word story based on a photo prompt and then receive as well as share feedback with writers from around the world. Approx 100 submissions are entered every week.
