It’s time for another flash fiction : D
The above picture was shot just by the shore of Valletta, where the ferry comes in. The cat was sitting under the table of a roadside restaurant, watching the people walking to and from Valletta.

A waterhole with a rusty ladder inside on the beach surrounding Sliema. Photo: Anita Simonsen
Here’s another flash fiction based of a photo taken while exploring Malta.
The above photo was taken on the same beach as the photo from my flash fiction ‘Bridging the Gap’. The beach is all rock and water, and was practically riddled with holes and channels. However, in one of these water holes were a rusty, old ladder partially surrounded by pebbles and rocks. I found it to be almost magical.
This may or may not have influenced today’s story. Continue reading

It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for another flash fiction!
The story is based on a photo, which I took during our exploration of Malta. The photo is of two Jewellery stores, which stands side by side on one of the main roads in Valletta’s cultural centre. One store is old and seemingly abandoned, while another is old and in prime condition.
The photo by itself tells a story, but I choose to put that story into words. Continue reading

Cabbage-looking plants in a flower bed on the shoreline of Sliema. Photo: Anita Simonsen
I take tons of photos when I go places and staying in Malta allows me to explore new things very often. This amounts to a lot of photos.
To give you an idea of the quantity, let me paint you a picture (he he):
twice my boyfriend and I went for a short walk near the shoreline of our hotel (this probably took less than 1½ hours each time) and after each walk I had around 116 photos.
I want to use these photos somehow in my writing, somehow combining photography and writing would be ideal.
At first I thought poetry, but I honestly don’t care much for it. Then it hit me …flash fiction! Continue reading
