|What's the "back story" in this photo?|
Now, look closer. The flowers, though showy and bright, seem to have parted a bit, allowing the majestic San Jacinto Mountain Range to peek into view.
Imagine how a camera close-up of the mountain would look. Then see yourself driving a convertible along a winding road to its peak, the warm desert breeze in your hair and sun on face, going up and up, a cliff dropping sharply down more than mile on one side, and the other roadside rife with boulders poised to fall.
When you reach the top safely, stop for a rest at an isolated roadside cafe, then take a hike onto a forest trail bordered with lofty firs where elk stop and stare.
Now, are those show-off flowers the real story?
The back story breathes life into a story, and is as vital as oxygen. Be inspired! G. H. Sherrer
