I urge people to join in, comment with your paragraph of fiction to accompany the image. It doesn’t have to follow my story or reflect the same themes.

This photograph will be reblogged under Ermisenda on tumblr, and added to the Picture it & Write gallery on Facebook and Pinterest.
Every fortnight we hope to host a photograph suggested by contributors. So, keep those photograph recommendations coming. Submit your favorite images (with credit) for next week’s Picture it & Write!
“What a freak.”
Snickers surrounded Collin as he tried to pull the sleeve of his jacket over the nub of a left arm, the result of a shark bite when he was a kid. Weren’t people supposed to mature at some point? Pulling his hood low over his ears, he used his right hand to put headphones in and drown out the mocking. His desk shook as the chair in front of it collided as a raven haired girl sat down with a plop. “Hippo,” the same group laughed.
As Collin looked her over, she was heavier than the waifs on the cheerleading team, but definitely not a hippo. He considered saying something, but the teacher walked in and everyone started shuffling around in their seats, opening up their books. The drone of the projector started up and images of naked women filled the screen as they moved to the Renaissance.
The girl in front of Collin sat up, suddenly interested by the women with round stomachs and thick thighs, considered beautiful in their time.
