Following Will’s example, I’m giving it a try. This photo struck me so hard, I had to do something. It’s very short, because, I think most great photos tell almost all the story by themselves. Almost all.
A Photo Quickie by Monocle
She sleeps, beautiful, innocent. My minions descend, reaching down for her, twining slowly, carefully. She doesn’t stir as they establish their gentle hold. They lift – it is easy. She is light with dreaming.
They carry her from her bed, from her room, from what she knows. They carry her to me.

    Wow. Nice. (You seen Sam Taylor-Wood’s recent photos? – similar).

    I like it.
    Any story where you can use “minions” — it’s a good story.

    Every time I see the picture and read the story, I crack up. I love it. If the blue balloons are the minions, one can only guess at the fate that awaits her. Let’s hope she’s not scared of heights.

    A perfect blend of innocence and wickedness.

      What could possibly be wicked about harmless blue balloons? Besides the bondage and kidnapping part, I mean.
