An abandoned rose

I found this bouquet of broken roses on the road the other day.

At first, I thought it looked so sad, abandoned on the pavement, witness to a possible romantic disaster. Then my imagination kicked in and I had three story lines fighting for attention in my mind. The scene had now become a perfect example to the question authors gets asked all the time, where does your ideas come from? Everywhere. Even from a bouquet of abandon roses on the pavement.

What are your thoughts when you see this picture? Does it have to be sad and tragic, considering the state of the flowers?

  1. Oh yes, my imagination would have kicked in too. Great story starter, mine would be a sad one.

      I tried to think of a non-sad story to try to be less predictable but it is interesting how some images are trained in your mind to provoke sad emotions.
