Sunday Photo Fiction is a weekly challenge now presented by Susan Spaulding, who has taken over this great weekly prompt from my old friend Al Forbes.
And this week’s intriguing photo is by the lady herself.
The idea is to write a short story (200 word max) inspired by what you see in the picture (below).

Well, this is not at all what I expected.
Although, if I am being honest, I have never really given it much thought.
Hah, being honest, that’s a good one, something else I don’t think about too often.
I’m not what you’d call a model citizen, done a few dodgy things in my time.
And talking about dodgy, it would have been a good idea to sidestep that truck.
But I was a bit preoccupied with all those cops waving guns and shouting at me.
Stuff like ‘Stop or I’ll shoot!’
I wonder how often that line works?
Anyway, I am now ambling along this kinda featureless corridor, not sure where I’m heading.
There are a couple of other guys here, and a cute lady in a short dress, very nice, but no one has spoken to me.
It’s as if they’ve got other things on their minds!
It seems to be getting warmer now, I suppose I should have expected that.
Oh, it seems like I have arrived.
Guess what, Satan is here to meet me.
And yes, he does have horns and a tail.
Man, this is just too clichéd!
Uh oh, he doesn’t seem to like criticism.
