Tuesday Prompt: #23 2012

The wrought iron stairs twisted twice before reaching the top of the aged brick building, but that was not what made them interesting. What caught the eye was the woman below turning slowly in a white strapless wedding dress with flared hem, her graceful arms extended out, head thrown back and the videographer leaning out over the rusty twisted metal twenty feet above her, his heavy camera extended even further out on a cantilevering arm strapped to a brace mounted to his chest.  I wondered who would fall first, her dizzy with the arching spin or him unable to pull back if the rail were to give way or his balance was thrown off by a sudden flinch of the sagging bolts.

Which one fell or did something else occur?  Take it from there.

This description was brilliant! I really felt absorbed! Good idea for a writing prompt too, I'm really tempted to try it out! It's really different from what I usually write, could be interesting!

If not this one, then maybe another.
There are other Tuesdays.
Appreciate the compliment.
Now I feel challenged to think of one that would catch your muse.
