Definition

One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Camera FLASH 55!

It is time to strike a pose with our photographic challenge for November.


Bizarre pictures show 19th century photoshopping


This challenge comes with a wide angle and any filter of your choosing.

Literal! Figurative! Reflective! Narrative!


As an added extra to this challenge, you may write a Flash 55 inspired by the photograph, or on a subject of your choice, as we keep the memory of Galen alive, and send our love and support to Hedgewitch, during her time off from hosting.

I don't know what you saw in the picture but for me this brought back the story about Salome and John the baptist...

Nice one, Bjorn! I see head displaced from heart... but I haven't got around to wrting about it yet - deep in the final examinations, so it is just marking scripts for me!

A very fine, intriguing picture find. Seems we don't have much experience with beheading, for me it's Salome and ISIS troops. I did the first, I'm entirely lost on ISIS except for their furor to destroy the good of their predecessors.
