Silent but Deadly

Today's muse: Stony River

Susan Carleton, at Stony River, is not having a good day. Not only is she living through a snow blizzard and ice storm, but the proverbial straw sent everything crashing when the power went off. Poor thing! We're all thinking of you, Susan!

The up side (at least for all us Microfiction Monday Junkies) is that Susan posts the picture she'll use the next week. Today's prompt is from her post of last week.

The prompt for Microfiction Monday #73:

* * *

Silent but Deadly

Both deaf and anosmic, photographer, Jeremiah Walsh, was unaware his subjects’ stern looks were a direct result of his heavy fibre diet.

@glnroz: And by the look of that man's face, the emission was also hearty!

@Deborah: It was the first thing that came to my mind. I always thought that everyone in these pictures had just swallowed some foul medicine.

@Spook: Glad you liked it!

I think this may be the most original microfiction ever!

Margaret said...

!! How funny, and a great take on the photo. I guess, then, if the appointment had been scheduled for later in the day, he would have had a big smile on his face. :)

Haha--loved this take on our prompt this week! I wonder if any 'subject' would have the nerve to tell the good photographer what the problem is!

Ha! I didn't do one this week but when I originally saw the photo I thought of the opposite...that he appeared rather constipated! Good one!

Monica Manning said...

@Mama Zen: I don't know about that, but thanks for the ego trip!

@Margaret: There's nothing like letting off a little steam to make you smile!

@sylviamorice: I bet he'd deny it!

@5thsister: Oh, I never thought that they look constipated, but you're right, they do! LOL!
