You know how you look at a couple sitting at a restaurant and wonder exactly what their relationship is? Whether they’re married or just seeing each other? Colleagues or friends? You watch a family rushing somewhere, all dressed up and wonder where they’re going. Is it s wedding, a party, do they like these people they’re going to meet?
If you have no idea what I am talking about then just consider me odd and move on. But if you do, then you’ll know we all make stories up. My brother looks at windows of people’s homes in apartment buildings as we pass by in a car and wonders what kind of a life there is inside those yellow squares, lending the drapery more importance than ever was envisioned.
In the spirit of crowdsourcing, and if you are entirely indulgent of me, I’d love to hear the stories you imagine. I’d also love it if you could look at these pictures and tell me a little story that it inspires in you. Alternatively, tell me which picture you like best: I’d like to build a story on the one that gets the most votes. (Assuming I have more than five readers left.)
Also, please feel free to take this up as a tag, if you like. Use my pictures if you want (just link them back here and credit me) or use your own.
