On The Run

Writers find inspiration in many places. Actually, story ideas are rarely an issue. Finding the time write them all is more of an issue, right? As for me, an unlikely but fruitful source of inspiration is in fashion editorial photography. Not just plain ol’ glamour shots, but the artfully styled pieces on elaborate sets and locations, often telling some sort of enigmatic story in pictures. I gaze at the sumptuous images and make up all kinds of stories in my head.

Here we see Frances Coombe and Anastasia Ivanova photographed by Ellen von Unwerth for Vogue Italia. Are they on the run? And if so, from who? The law, their spouses, lovers…maybe they lifted a bag of money from the mob?  Who knows, but it’s fun to play make believe with the photos…
