Once again I have found an intriguing collection of images that I hope will be of use to you guys as sparks to your ideas. In other words, I hope that the images below will give you ideas for stories as opposed to using them in stories.
So, lets get started on them……………
Now this is a restaurant with a difference! A weirdly odd and somewhat Edwardian effect. Many years ago whilst on a winter tour of Scotland with the Little Angel Puppet Theatre we found ourselves at John O’Groats which has a truly odd restaurant as well – and when we arrived there, a totally empty place (it was January after all) we were greeted by this odd building and Hawaiian guitar music blaring out of a public address system… All very odd.
One or other of these two odd images should give you ideas for a story….. Though certainly with a Gothic feel I would imagine.
From the sublime to the ridiculous now.
I would imagine that this silly photo could be the basis for a Sci-Fi story at the very least……. Whilst it is a simple bit of image jiggery-poky and is also mildly funny, it could be the basis of a story about a world in which people’s bodies are manipulated for some reason….. What do you think?
This is simply silly…………… But it is a new look at an old legend perhaps?
Now I have selected three more odd or curious images that give me pause for thought, each one of which seem to me to be ripe with an internal story.
What is happening in them and could one perhaps use all three of them in one story?
Well, perhaps one might use the first two in one story, but I am damned if I can see how one might use the third image in the same story as the first two.
And to finish with, here is a collection of creatures that one would not like to come up against on a dark and stormy night – or even on a sunny day come to think of it! I have no idea what or who they are, I suspect it is some sort of Swiss (or Scandinavian) religious ceremony that has been stolen (as is the case with just about all Christian festivals) from a pre-Christian festival. But whatever it actually is all about, it seems to me to be begging for a story to use it as a central feature of the story. So, lets see what you can do with this one!
If any of these images have been a help for you in any way, please do let me know what you used them for.
