Sunday Photo Fiction – 22 December – Ornament Selfie

Sunday is the beginning of another weekly invitation from Alastair to open our imagination and tell the world what we see in his photo prompt. There is always several rich stories that flow from this interesting photographic offering. If you fancy a short adventure add your 200 words or less and join the fray.


Cassie stood for a long time studying something on the tree. Brent had the bowl game on, so he did not really know what she was doing; only that she stood in the same place for what seemed an eternity. A flash caught his attention for a moment, before the team he favored got a long touchdown run and drew him back in. Another flash and his attention to the game was broken.

“Whacha doin’ babe?”


“It looks like something!”

“Just experimenting,” Cassie cooed. She was fine working in solitude, feeling he did not understand her artistic slant. She saw something interesting here and enjoyed the challenge of capturing what she saw.

While the commercials filled his screen, Brent circled through the living room where she stood studying her phone. He slid behind her to peek at the image.

“Are you trying to make a selfie? Cause if you are you got the idea wrong. Your reflection in that ball is too small to see.”

“Yeah, that’s it,” Cassie said, trying to get rid of him.

“Well, you’re the artist,” he said.

Cassie smiled as she thought she finally had an entry for the 2014 Photography Prize in London.

    I really like that. At least he can still watch the SuperBowl oblivious to what she is doing 🙂
