Thursday photo prompt: Caught #writephoto

Every Thursday at noon GMT, Sue publishes one of her photos as a writing prompt.

She was tall and willowy, her slender figure standing well above her minions.
The way she walked suggested arrogance and conceited poise, the sweep of her long limbs made each and all sit up to take notice when she passed.
Whispers in the forest warned of times changing, but she took no heed, such was her confidence that she was automatically absolved from repercussions simply because of who she was.
The swagger of her hips and the way her hands had lifted to her head to smooth a wayward hair that had come loose from her chignon were captured perfectly when the Fairy King cast his spell.
Now his eldest daughter would remain tall and willowy, but no longer mobile.
Even the sun nodded in agreement as it glinted through her fingertips.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    • Good morning Willow! Many thanks for commenting. Sue has some wonderful and inspiring photos. I just saw the sweeping trunk which brought a fish-tail dress to mind. The rest just followed.
