Trapped

Little did they know when the photographer took their picture that they would find themselves trapped in a painting. For eternity, they would play the same refrain of their favourite jazz piece. The artist looked at the musicians in admiration as he hung them up on the wall. Whenever he looked at them, the man would remember that pleasant day and the exact moment when Clarisse accepted his marriage proposal. She did not yet know the extent of his ability – and did not realise that if he ever took her picture and painted it, she would remain forever his. He looked at the rest of his collection: of events and people trapped forever in a moment of time. He guarded them well, making sure that they could not escape into the present. They were his. Forever.

  1. Eternally trapped, I think the Mona Lisa has been the one who has been trapped for all time.
    Then again in this technological age, we are all trapped in the amount of pictures that float the worlds of cyber.

  2. hi Colline, you have a very thought provoking intro here: “Little did they know when the photographer took their picture that they would find themselves trapped in a painting. For eternity, they would play the same refrain of their favourite jazz piece…”

    1. Thank you Frizz – though I cannot take credit for the first sentence as it was the prompt. Your photo matches the story perfectly and may be another of the photographer’s pieces 🙂
