This week’s mega short-story challenge

This week’s writing challenge revolves around a photo I took of a 1930s car parade.

Use the photo to inspire a 150-200 word super-short story – a proper one, with beginning, middle, end and punchline (all super-short stories gotta have a punchline) – and post it on your blog, with the prompt photo and a link back to this blog for others to pick up and join in the fun. of course the story can be about anything.

This particular picture was taken during the annual Art Deco Weekend in Napier, New Zealand – a wonderful celebration of 1930s fantasy that really does make you feel, at times, like you’ve slipped back in time.
