Zoom out from a picture.
This is a shared writing task by zooming out, so to speak, by leaving comments. For example if the picture was a bowl, and the first commenter describes something bigger around the bowl (like a table it’s on) and the next commenter would write about the room it was in, and the next could zoom out the window and so on. The most important part is to ensure you read previous comments, so you can add to the story.
What is the story? “Zoom out” of the picture to reveal what you imagine is also a part of the story.
Please make sure you read previous comments and continue the story from the last comment posted.
