Weekly Writing Challenge: Snapshot 2

He crouches on a canvas stool in the busy sidewalk deep in concentration wrapped in layers of defence against the cold wind oblivious of shoppers teeming, eager to participate in this giddy season. His concentration focuses on a panel, a rash of spore-like wires, clips junctions and relays like froth on coffee, flashes of blue and yellow exposed to the light temporarily while he seeks a malfunction and fulfils his purpose to keep us connected.

The challenge is to ‘write’ where hitherto a photograph would be preferred.

      Thanks for your support.
      Sorry to correct you but it’s: ‘a picture is worth a thousand words’. The idea is that a picture tells story with such simplicity and conveys the moment in an instant

    I like this, it was a surprise when he didn’t turn out to be a homeless man with a dog and a sign asking for may change please. You’re very good, are you going to do any more entries?

      Thanks Gilly. I dunno about more, it depends of what I see that translates into prose. It was a beautiful day today walking with Alfie along The Severn……without a camera!
      We’ll see. It was a brilliant post…
