If you want to go full Apollo 11, check out Apollo in Real Time – it’s amazing and I can’t wait for the Moon landing on Saturday. If you’re not into space exploration, remember that the picture is only the starting point. You take your lines wherever you want.
You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:
Write three lines inspired by the photo prompt (& give them a title if possible).
Link back to this post (& check the link shows up under the weekly post).
Tag your post with 3LineTales (so everyone can find you in the Reader).
Read and comment on other TLT participants’ lines.
So you’re building a new Voyager craft that will carry the best of human culture, right?
You’ll be pleased to find that this letter is accompanied by my best work. Don’t worry, they are prints. You wouldn’t shoot the Mona Lisa into space either, would you?
I know what you’re thinking – who is this guy? I’m an up and coming artist, I’m going to take the art world by storm any day now. By the time you’re ready to launch Voyager, I’ll be simply the best. Look at the prints, see for yourselves.
It’s a new restaurant, and yes, they are a bit chaotic. The plates don’t look as immaculate as you’d expect from a French restaurant, the service needs straightening out – but the food tastes great. I am, however, surrounded by wanna-be food critics who take pictures of everything to post to Instagram, hashtag onceandneveragain.
In 1969, NASA sent people to the moon with less computer power that each of us carries around. But what do we do with it? Write scathing reviews on TripAdvisor, insult strangers on Twitter. Some achievement.
No more giant leaps for mankind… Not even small steps.
