#3LineTales—Week Six


Photo by Samuel Zeller – click here for full res version

What do I see in this edgy, cool, black and white photo? I’ve been looking forward to this week’s challenge all week; I feel a bit like a kid waiting for Christmas! Being a painter, my world is predominant about color. When I saw this black and white image, I wasn’t sure how to handle it. My first response was that it reminded me of a Rorschach inkblot. The overall impact of this image is in the stark contrast of the black and white. I investigated the details a bit and they were fascinating, but the impact for me was the totality of the image upon initial consumption.

Here is my interpretation via haiku.

A white-toothed grin
with braces made of people
sitting upon chairs.

Thank you to Sonya of Only 100 Words for coming up with this very challenging Three Line Tales image. Want to participate in the fun? For complete information go to Sonya’s Three Line Tales page.


  1. And you know what, I think it’s brilliant. I’m a big fan of sideways interpretation of photo prompts, so I’m glad you didn’t the challenging nature of the prompt stop you!

  2. I think this one is really imaginative, albeit a trifle sinister 🙂 You did help me discover something else in the image: the bat-signal! Brilliantly done!

  3. Haiku scares me so I never touch the craft. This is a stunning take on the visual prompt. Merely a visitor intrigued wondering if to join. Thank you for sharing.😇
