Below is my entry for Lisa McCourt Hollar's 55 Word Challenge Week 42. Check out all the stories here.
This is based on a picture of an oil refinery - these is more that intend to do with piece so check back later to see what I add.
Take a photograph, and the oil refinery is captured revealing thousands
of lights shimmering and sparkling under a darkening blue sky.
A picture to fire the imagination with images of steampunk inventiveness, and charm.
But photographs lie.
Those living under the refinery’s shadow witness the truth as the monster belches flame and devours the stars.
