Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #12

FFFCWelcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.” Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenge bloggers to write a relatively short flash fiction piece inspired by the photo. While there are no definitive style or word limits, I suggest trying to keep your posts to under 300 words.

I want to sincerely thank everyone who has participated in these challenges so far. Your posts have been very creative. I hope this week’s image will also generate some great posts as well.

So now it’s time for my twelfth weekly Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge. The image below is from If this picture inspires you and you wish to participate, please write your post, use the tag #FFFC, and link back to this post.

Note: some bloggers have had issues with pingbacks showing up lately, so if you don’t see it shortly after you published your post, you might want manually add your link in the comments.

Please take a few minutes to read some of the other responses to this photo challenge. And most important, have fun.

    Hey, can you put descriptions with your image? I’d like to participate, but am unable to see the photo as I am blind? Any possibility you’d be able to describe the photos for me? thanks…

      Sorry. It’s a picture of a factory with tall smoke stacks spewing pollution into the air and what appears to be nuclear power plant structures in the background and, in the foreground, a bunch of yellow barrels strewn across a field, the barrels having the nuclear waste symbol on each of them. I hope this helps.

    Hello, Fandango! I was introduced to you by Mel (Crushed Caramel.) She mentioned on one of my blog posts where I spoke of my love of MD blue crab, that you are a fellow blue crab lover, so I thought I’d come check out your blog and say hello! 🙂

      Nice to meet you. I really do love Maryland blue crabs, but I live in San Francisco now, where pretty much all I can get are Dungeness crabs. They’re good, but they’re not Maryland blues. When I really want a treat, I found a place that will pack and overnight ship a dozen blues from Maryland. I get them and steam them in Old Bay Seasoning. Yum! Expensive…but worth it a couple of times a year.

        Oh, for sure! I think I would do the same. My brother lives in San Jose, and I agree, Dungeness crabs are good, but nothing beats a blue crab!

      I tried to comment but got a message that I couldn’t connect to the server. An excellent, albeit bleak tale about the potential future of humankind and our planet.
