The Friday Fictioneer Challenge: Write a 100-word story based on the photo.
Carol tried to hide behind her camera. Standing as far away as she could, hoping no one would notice, she photographed people as silhouettes, two-dimensional beings, dark contrasted against light.
Over time, however, her camera became her connection to people instead of a shield. The individuals she photographed often came up to her with comments and questions about her work, about her. To them, she wasn’t just a shadow.
Eventually, Carol reconsidered her tactics. Stepping out of the darkness, she approached people, asking permission to photograph them, finding a universe of uniqueness, a fullness detailed in her newly discovered light.
