I just looked at BradP's kitty collection:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/19708/thumb/161349.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/19708/thumb/161349.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

and it inspired me to suggest this challenge topic:

Tell a story in 4 (or 6 or 9 or 12 or whatever number D&L think is best) pictures.
It must be a coherent sequence - beginning, middle, end - that could illustrate a story, but of course no text is allowed.

The topic of the actual story could be left up to us OR specified.

If we're given a topic, perhaps you would like to suggest some?

Holy cow, not a single reply?

Either it was the dumbest idea I've ever had, or I am the Queen of Threadkillers.

Let me try this again.......

I like it... but as I have been told many a times before... I tend to prattle on... and on... and on... hence, I might pass of this one for the time being.

I think it's a nice idea--or some other sort of series/collage like Skip has been doing, i.e., rather than a story, just many shots on a theme.

HEY! Who said you could use Annabelle as an example? Oh - you did? OK then.
ROFL

I think it has merit. A few images in one, or a few side-by-side could be an interesting challenge.

I like the idea. Here's an original story I have been thinking about pitching to hollywood for a TV series.
' . substr('//www.kpriest.com/dpchallenge/hillbillies_th.jpg', strrpos('//www.kpriest.com/dpchallenge/hillbillies_th.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

You could probably put some words and a catchy jingle to it.

There are 9 photos, see if you can put words to each of them (left to right). I'll start with number 1:

#1: "Now listen to my story 'bout a man named Jed."

Ken, that is awesome!!!

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.

Well now its time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
You're all invited back a gain to this locality
To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality

Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?.

I sure hope you is right happy now... stupid lyrics is gonna be stuck in me head all night now. heheheheh

Ken; If you convince Hollywood to get your story on TV, I would certainly be a viewer.
