Escape your urban life

Take a turn at the Five Card Flickr Stories site; generate your own story. Copy the code to put the story in your own site.

What a fun assignment making a story out of 5 photos.

My story describes escaping from your urban enviornment. I liked how it actually worked out as I picked photos. I hope you enjoy it!

When ever you feel locked into your urban environment take time to escape by motor, the backdoor, a window, or a door. But be careful because there are pitfalls in the shadows.

I was a little worried when the first five photos showed up but I was drawn to the rusted lock. Those types of items that have history always draw my attention. The other photos all had at least one that was urban and found in the city. So by the time I got to the second photo I was thinking this story is about your urban environment and maybe how you can escape. My story had a spine and it would go something like this:
Once upon a time there was a boy that wanted to escape his urban life. Every day, there was a lock on the gate and he could not escape. Every day, he dreamed of hoping on his bike and escaping. One day he realized he could go out the back door or a window. Because of that, door he was able to escape. Until finally he found freedom.

    Most excellent! I like how you found a thread to connect the disparate photos– isn’t it ironic that there are no people in any of them? It could have been taken as a post apocalyptic scenario.

    And good for you to play with a story spine that could go with the photos. The boy learns that freedom is always an option, if you take action?

      Thank you! I did sort of notice no people in the photos but didn’t even think to include them in a story. But your apocalyptic scenario woudl work nice too. Especially with the final door that has ivy growing on it.
