It's been requested that this be hosted again! So, here goes . . .

This swap is inspired by a photograph I found on the ground today while taking a walk. As I walked, I started to create a story about the people in the photo.

For this swap, either find an image via Google or at a thrift shop, even in a friend's photo albums. The photo must be of people, a family, pets, etc., but that are NOT yours. The photo will feature absolute strangers to you.

Copy the photo, print it, etc., and send it to your partner. Along with the photo, tell them about the photo as if it IS yours. "This is my Grandma June posing with Uncle Robert, they immigrated from . . . " etc. The story, names, etc. are to all be fictional. This is definitely an exercise for your creativity. :)

As a bonus, feel free to write a true blurb about yourself: real age, real origins, etc.

The photo description should be a good paragraph, at least 5-6 sentences. Feel free to write more if the spirit moves you! Ratings must be at least 4.98, no unexplained/recent 1s or 3s (message me if you've had an issue and we can discuss participation). This swap is indeed open internationally, and newbies are welcome with a well constructed profile.
