I submitted mine a few weeks ago. Looking forward to seeing everyone's contribution and creativity . . . Hopefully mine will be up to the same calibre.

There are some very creepy photographs there. What a great subject for a séance effect.

I was going to enter this contest but the mothers were hidden so well I couldn't find any.

Pawel, I no longer engage in entering creative contests I did however enjoy the bizarre photos of concealed or hidden mothers with their children. Wonderful images, just begging for a back story.


One might ask if a mother was actually beneath the cloth, or was it only spirit of a mother lost in child birth; the baby having surviving her;but a mother love is alwats present.

Just a thought. Thanks again for posting tose incredibly haunting photographs.

Pawel, shame might be another reason a person might resort to covering themselves. The person who chose to cover themselves may have done so out of shame. Perhaps they have horible scars due to an accident / fire. they may have been what were once consider freaks.Their off spring being polar opposites of themselves.



That is the great part of your story witing challenge you have offered up/ aiat challenges us to really imagine the 'why' OF IT ALL.

If the innocent child were the m end result of an adulterous affair. Guilt and fear might be reason tconceal her identity.


Fear of condemnation by the community and also by the church/.

Another victim of the Scarlet letter syndrome.

Pawel, one final thought, if I may. On a grander scale, the combination of an illusion such as Dekoltas chair vanish, and a seance as has been suggesated.

What lovely deceit to begin with what is assumed to be a seated figure covered with a cloth. The photograps are shown, and an attempt is made to contact one of the women She makes her presence known via tapping sounds or movement of the covering shroud et. She leaves her love in the form of a memento lying on the chair as the cloth is whisked away, she has vanished, returned beyond the beil. 0nly the haunting memento, symbol of her love remains. If you choose, an actual woman need never be seated there from the start. Oblu a modified gizzmo form which may be oulled away with the cloth, rather than tipping to the back might be employed. The non tipping feke is attached to the chair back via magnets.


Thank you for the opportunity to offer suggestions for what ever they may be worth.

Kotah, you will want to read my entry. I started along the same lines as you, but abandon that for a story with a dark twist to it. It’s short and I can PM the story to you.

At some point when we are tired of waiting, maybe we should just post our submissions down below in the crypt for all to enjoy.
