Five Frame Story

Visual Story is a Flickr group in which you're supposed to tell a short narrative in five frames. Cool stuff. "Ride of your life" is probably my favorite thus far.

I don't get it. Some of these are clearly real, but some of them appear to be staged. Many more appear to mislead the reader by juxtaposing unrelated pictures in an attempt to confuse the viewer into thinking that the images are somehow related. This is duplicitous and wrong, and it is cheating at the expense of those people who do not associated unrelated pictures with one another.

I believe the roller coaster example is attemping to mislead the viewer.

First there are a bunch of pictures of a roller coaster, which looks like it is somewhere in the midwest in the winter. Then there is a picture of a girl who has experienced some kind of liquid accident that has soiled the crotchal region of her jeans. Are we seriously to infer here that the roller coaster made her urinate in her pants? I doubt that very much so!

Consider: it is clearly winter out, but the girl is not even wearing a jacket. The roller coaster is clearly an exterior, out-of-doors model, yet the soilage is shown in the indoors of what appears to be a nightclub or recreation center, which are usually NOT adjacent to roller coasters or their egress platforms. Aditionally, the girl is nowhere to be seen on the actual roller coaster itself.

I hereby call total fakesies on this one. I'm sorry, but I will not be dicked around here.
