I’ve been off my writing for Friday Fictioneers of late. However, when this photo from Adam Ickes was submitted this morning, by Rochelle over at Addicted to Purple, I just had to get my first impression written down. Thanks to you both for sharing.
The writing is open to anyone, and the rules are easy: writers are encouraged to be as innovative as possible with the prompt and 100 word constraints.

What Carl didn’t Understand
Carl never really got the hang of living life in the real world. He’d grown up always wishing he was someone else. Somewhere else.
Fact is, he’d always wanted to be a cowboy, to go back in time and experience life in the rough. So one day at the museum he stunned everyone when he stripped down and just walked into the lobby mural. Too bad he didn’t know the rules of entering into a painting. You see, you don’t get to choose. Once you’re in, like a fly on flypaper, you’re static.
That’s him over on the lower left.
