Tell a story

One of the challenges set this week has been to:

Imagine you are being commissioned by a newspaper to tell a story in five to seven images. It can be about anything – ideally something local – but it must have a beginning, middle and end. It can be about a person, a place or a thing. Keep your focus narrow. What matters in this exercise is to make sure each photograph gets to the essence of what the narrative wants to express.

Share the five to seven images of your story below, and comment on the stories of your peers – tell them what you see. Did they understand what your story is about?

As usual, being pressed for time, I decided that I would make use of the Hipstamatic app on my phone to take the images in the slideshow below:

I chose this option as a means to add a little ‘confusion’ to proceedings, and to resemble my mindset relating to the tale. It will be interesting to see if any of my peers grasp the basis of this photo story.
