Submitted for Sunday Photo Fiction
The Assignment: The idea of Photo Fiction is write a story of around 100-200 words (which is also called Flash Fiction) based on a photo as a prompt.

It dawned on my today that I have been participating in this challenge for more than a year. I decided to create an anthology of these stories which you can access from a menu at the top of my page.
On the September 14, 2014 Sunday Photo Fiction I wrote a trilogy. I decided that I would try expanding those stories for a few weeks. The titles will not be Train Track Trilogy each week but will have three or a version of three in the title but be a continuation. Here are the stories in order:
