Five Card FlickrFive Card Flickr is a story making app which is great fun, poses a challenge, can have amazing results and leads to creative, imaginative story making.

The app draws upon collections of photos specified by  tags in flickr.  The person making a choice is given five random photos each time they make a selection. The writer’s task is to select one picture from each set, building a complete set of five images. Writers can then use the photographs, in any order to make a story in pictures.

All you do is choose Play A Round and it offers you the first five cards from which you choose one.

I once had a dream when I was young, and I tell you about my first nightmare…..it started like this….

I landed on this beautiful place, there were colorful flowers on the side walk and silver pathways, I followed the pathway and as I walked forward I was close, arriving somewhere really bright and sparkly. The brightness started to hurt my eyes, so I closed my eyes while my legs were still moving. I slowly opened my eyes, and I was surprised and astonished. There was a beautiful scenery in front of me. It was like an imaginary world. All these tiny people dressed in elegant clothes waving at me and welcoming me. They started to sing a really cute song about friends and family. I felt really special and so I danced with them. We were all having fun until the Wicked Witch was swirling in tornadoes and landed on the beautiful place, it destroyed everything on the land, EVERYTHING. The minute the witch arrived, the flowers died, the pink flowers turned into a brown useless plant, it made me feel bad and sad, Everyone on this land was trying to run away from the witch, but the witch captured everyone in this HUGE sack. I was about to run away, trying to find the entrance back home. But I couldn’t find the entrance. I was wandering around, when the witch also snatched me along with the tiny people. It started to rain, the witch caused tornadoes and thunder storms, bats were flying around the dark and humid sky. I was too scared to open my eyes, I was trembling. I thought that the witch was going to eat me, and she was actually really thinking of eating me. By the time the witch arrived at her palace, she tied all of us to the wall and she sat down on her chair and took a sip of her wine. Relaxing, and making this cruel sound, thinking that she overtook the lame “Flower Land”. I was mad, even if I was scared I really thought that it was cruel of her to do this to these people. I yelled ” Who are you, let us GOOOO!!!!” The Witch stood up, and started to walk towards me, and said ” Now, you look like a tasty snack…yummm” I screamed, as loud as I can… NOOO SOMEONE SAVE. MEEEE….phew… That was a dream…
