Weekly Photo Challenge: Snapshots: The White Rabbit
Oh WOW this photo challenge was hard! I decided to do a photo story called The White Rabbit. I hope you like the story and theme. It’s only 250 words long (because the photos really tell the story) and it’s told with photos and in the captions. The photo challenge was Snapshots.
Note on the story:
The theme of this story is Alice Through the Looking Glass, but only with the chasing a white rabbit motif. I wanted the White Rabbit to be a girl, with ambiguity as to whether she’s chasing herself or whether the narrator is chasing her, like in the beginning stages of a relationship. I wanted to combine a narrative of Alice with the bizarre surrealism of a Kafkaesque landscape that I found on a walk when I went to the Scottish Borders last year. It is Border Country in a lot of different ways, the interchange between England and Scotland. I wanted this to be ambiguous and open ended, to give it a sense of mystery and open interpretation.
I would appreciate any feedback as I don’t usually share my creative writing on here, although the words were really just to tie the pictures together to explain why I arranged them like this.
PS The pictures are of myself but for the purposes of the story, the person in the pictures is not the narrator telling the story.
