Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #103

Welcome to “Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge.” Each week I will be posting a photo I grab off the internet and challenging bloggers to write a flash fiction piece or a poem inspired by the photo. There are no style or word limits.

The image below is from Tim Grundtner at the visually challenged writer, the photo shows a girl wearing a white dress and sneakers who seems to be floating on her back in midair in an attic.

If this week’s image inspires you and you wish to participate, please write your post, use the tag #FFFC, and link back to this post. I hope it will generate some great posts.

Thanks to all of you who have participated in these challenges. Your posts have been very creative. Please take a few minutes to read the other responses to this photo challenge.

    It looks, to me, like she’s falling from up higher. It does look like an attic (an unfinished but old or weathered* one), while a window has been installed over on one angle of the ceiling. But there is also what looks like a basement floor, near and underneath (as if the attic floor). She could be falling through a hole in the roof, as there is water on the floor… no, actually, I think that’s broken glass. When I first saw the picture (last night), I felt like it fits with the feeling you’ve been lied to or misled for a long and meaningful period of time and haven’t yet gotten your bearings. There are times when negative and/or traumatic experiences can have you or someone show up in your dreams as being in the basement (in some basement).

    When I was writing about medical disagreement a couple or few days ago (and/or a clarification over study in time), I just so happen to have had an Apple Music video on for Oxygene (Jean-Michel Jarre) for part of that time. It was dots, lines, and geometric shapes on a sort of celadon-colored field or background (I don’t want to say green screen, because it wasn’t like that or didn’t seem that way, and it was a soft but saturated green). I sometimes like a somewhat disoriented feeling in a certain safe way like that. Widescreen and memory enhanced one another.

    * In my experience, it doesn’t take long for clean building wood to get weathered if you don’t enclose or surface (outside) the structure. I’ve also observed, with dismay, builders throwing clean lumber on the ground to grow mold and then using it for the project. When I had anything to do with it, they were reprimanded (if they already knew better) and taught how to correctly care for the materials.

        Oddly, while looking at that picture and listening to my music, just now, I remembered that room 103 was the classroom of my third-grade teacher (one of my favorite teachers). This girl doesn’t look like a third-grader, though; more like a 22-year-old mom.
