Summary: Harry's gone travelling, but she doesn't forget her brother back home.
Date: 8 July 2013
Prompt: Forced perspective: Either use the concept in your story, or find an image that uses this technique and use it as the basis for the story. (If the latter, please include a link to the picture if possible; we'd love to see it!)

The photos from Harry are a silly lot, but that's why John likes them so much. It's been a long time since Harry's been happy enough to be silly. Her emails are short and loud and colourful, just like her. The first picture she sent was from Paris where she'd posed as if reaching for the top of the Eiffel Tower. She'd almost got it, too.

Dear Johnny,
Having a blast!!! Here's me at the Eiffel Tower. I'm HUGE! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!

The next was of her posed across at Notre Dame, leaning in and visually replacing a flying buttress.

Dear Johnny,
I'm a flying BUTTRESS!!!! Sounds CHEEKY, right?! HAHAHAHAHA!

The third she'd sent was a new-to-him take on holding up the leaning tower of Pisa. She was lying on her back in the grass with her feet up against the shorter side.

Dear Johnny,
Just kicking back in Italy. Going for PIZZA later! Get it?!

A comedian she was not.

His computer chimes with the arrival of new mail and he clicks over to see the latest from his sister.

This time she appears to be pinching the nipple of the Venus de Milo.

Dear Johnny,
Ooh, like MARBLE! She seems quite happy to meet me, don't you think!? (I bet you're blushing now!)
PS. Next stop: Berlin!!!


Photo inspirations:
Eiffel Tower
Leaning Tower of Pisa
The other two, alas, are merely products of my imagination.
