I went out to take some pictures.
Maybe, I thought
I will see something that wills inspire me, or give me nightmares or something.
In my mind’s eye I threw up a grid and started to methodically look for a little story to capture.
What I got was a bunch of nothing.
I had never deleted pictures so fast- on the other hand I’ve been getting a lot of things I haven’t liked so maybe I’m just getting better at hitting that delete key without putting much thought into it;
I was standing there, deleting pictures ( so glad I was accomplishing something ) and marveling at the fact that if there was a story to be found the only story I got was how fast ideas can run from you, if they put their mind too it.
Then I looked down and saw this stump and thought I could spook it up somehow for my Halloween posts this fall when I noticed…yeah, it looked like a face was staring up at me.
It even looked like it had a cigar in the corner of it’s mouth.
It also looked very annoyed.
I see a story in your future Sour Puss and in this one, I get the last laugh.
Thanks for the inspiration.
