Early in the morning, a flower shop owner rinses down his shop before tending to his morning orders. An order for some pink orchids is the first to go out in the morning to 1 Rue Du Amor. The delivery boy walks down the alleyways of Paris to a doorstep with empty pots awaiting new occupants. Meanwhile, a professor is delivering a lesson, wondering the whole time if the flowers for his love have arrived safely.

  1. Very well done to weave the narrative through all five images; it works well because it is an open ended story, the reader left to imagine what happens when the flowers are found.

    I am curious to know what the process was like too as you had to choose photos. There seems to be a lot of pressure to pick the first photo (to set the story in motion) and the last one (to wrap it up). What I like about your story is that the picture alone did not end the story, but the way you wrote it up works perfectly.

    • Thank you for your feedback. I chose the first picture with the objective to leave the “door as open as possible” so to speak. I wanted a foundation with lots of space to build upon. With each subsequent picture, I followed the same approach. By photo #5, I maintained that space, which allowed the “open-ended” nature of the story…which, by the way, was not intentional, but merely a product of my initial strategy. I’m glad it worked out!
