Just as a reminder here is the story that started it all. For sale: baby shoes, never worn.

Group Description

Ernest Hemingway was once prodded to compose a complete story in six words. His answer, personally felt to be his best prose ever, was "For sale: baby shoes, never used." Some people say it was to settle a bar bet. Others say it was a personal challenge directed at other famous authors.

We'd like you to post a photo with a Six Word Story in the title section of a Flickr photo. Be as inventive as possible. Have those few words tell the whole tale, and let the picture be its visual interpretation. Just make sure the title of your pic does indeed contain SIX WORDS in English and has a narrative. If it does not, it will be deleted. Also, if it's not a story, but only a headline, caption or description, it will also rejected.

And even if you don't have a photo, share the best Six Word Story you can think of. Or, add your Six Word Story to another's picture in the group. If you have a 6worder that just can't wait, the thread Six words in search of a photograph is a good place to post it and someone might have the perfect photo for you.

Be sure to tag your photos with "sixwordstory" or "6WS". It would be nice also, if you would add "For six word story" in the text portion under the photo. It's a link back to the group, and helps people find other Six Word Stories to enjoy. To make it easy, just copy the italicized line below and paste it in below your photo!

And most importantly, have fun!

Group Rules

Post photos only with a six word sentence in the title section of a Flickr photo. If it contains more or less than 6 words, it will be deleted. Also, if it's not a story, but only a headline or description or caption, it will also disappear.

Please tag each photo in the pool with either 6ws or "six word story."
