'Waiting at the Gate'
πŸ“·πŸ‘πŸ˜Ž

An almost timeless photgraph; given that the picture could, of course, be dated by the car.

@itdm5j21

Is the car waiting for someone who was dropped off?

Is someone being picked up who lives there?

Will the trip be very long?

So many unanswerable questions...to be imagined and developed into a story.

@Algot

Probably not a wedding car, as there are no white ribbons. Maybe then a funeral - the flowers in the back window?

Probably not as the driver has not stayed with the vehicle. The driver's window is down though and the front wheels are tucked out ready to go.

So, are they in the house or just out of shot, checking the pressure of the nearside front tyre, perhaps?

Who knows - are there any budding writers in the fediverse?

@itdm5j21

This could be a great writer's prompt idea, for sure. Maybe a weekly thing? There is an instance of writers, wandering.shop, I think.

There's even a #SmallStories hashtag available.

@itdm5j21 @Algot

Check out ReadAs,WriteAs for those pertaining to be writers...

The car is not near Liverpool, still has its wheels πŸ˜†

@matt

Thank you for the heads-up.

I'll check it out.

@Algot My personal blog is a self-hosted version of WriteFreely. The whole WriteAs platform family is good stuff.

@matt - who is the chief coder, developer and bottle-washer is very good at seeking the views of those using the platform.

A lot of it is early development based, but the main WriteAs platform is been used widely in the wild and Fediverse...

@matt @Algot The car I beleive is a Humber Snipe model - introduced in 1939.
Speaking of Liverpool: The group of companies that Humber was a part of, had a 'shadow' factory at Speke, Liverpool, UK.

Aircraft were assembled there along with military vehicles based on Humber models - e.g Montgomery's two staff cars.

None, on leaving the factory, had there wheels missing! 😊
