    Photographic narrative.

    I was impressed by toe_sa's series of photos for the December Challenge.

    So the challenge this month is to tell a narrative with between three and five photos.

    Your inspiration can be anything, a song, a poem, a newspaper article, your favourite cartoon, a blog site, or a book you've read. Your production can be elaborate as toe_sa's was, or as simple as stick figures drawn on a scrap bit of paper. ;)

    Offical February 2005 Theme : Photographic narrative, 3 to 5 photos.

    End date: 10pm AEDT (Australian Eastern Daylight Time) Monday 28th February 2005.

    No photos taken before 12.01 am, 1st February 2005 will be considered.
    Thumbnails should be less than 200 pixels wide, for ease of viewing and I would suggest that the linked larger photo should be less than 1600 pixels on the longer side.

    Here's a series to get you started.

    That will do. Or it can be more of a story like toe_sa's. My example was just one I had handy.

    I had several props arranged at one stage, but they eventually went home as they charge by the hour :shock:

    :lol: LOL

    At least you live in a place where women can walk the streets at night...

    I was looking at your entry again. The more I look at it, the more it grows on me. Simple, kind of poignant in a way... yet kind of amusing too... Am I reading too much into it? :confused:

    Read what you will. I simply provide the pictures.

    I drive past that place about 30 times a night and it always makes me wonder how they stay in business. 5 nights of the week its deserted then for 2 nights its flat out. Hmm...a bit like my work really.

    Thanks :) I thought of it in the shower one morning...

    As a side note: It's an interesting exercise in trust to snap on some surgical gloves and ask your partner to climb into a tarpaulin in the boot of her car while you fasten her wrists behind her back with cable ties... in the dark, late at night, with nobody else around...

    Thanks baby, owe you one!

    Cheers, McG.

    Some people will pay extra for that... :leet:

    Thanks Ellroy. My initial thoughts on this were that a single photograph (if it's good enough) should be able to convey a narrative by itself, but that wasn't the challenge... ;) so then I thought of photographing several photographs and went from there.

    I have tried to put quite a bit of a story into the scene(s). Is there anyone who watches too much CSI (like me) who would like to make some observations?

    Clue: The "Obscene Crimes Arrest Unit" have collared the murdered woman's partner. How did they know it was him before he'd even had time to cover his tracks properly? ;)

    McG.
