Do you ever stop and think about how much shit is simultaneously happening around the world at any given moment? Well, it turns out people are out there taking pictures of it!

This week you are going to go to:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/picturegalleries/picturesoftheday/

or

http://www.bbc.com/news/in_pictures/

(or another "in pictures" site, just link to it)

and choose a picture from October of this year. You are going to write about that picture (make sure to include it with your submission). You could write from the perspective from someone or something in the picture. You could write about the events leading up to the picture. Vignettes are ok this week. What I really want is texture. I want your stories to ooze color, secrete smells, and chafe me with sensation.

Description is key this week. Like I said, I'll accept vignettes--if the writing is nice enough. But also don't crawl too far up your own ass or anything.

Any genre is fine, but I'm going to frown a lot if I see any generic swords and sorcery shit.
