Picture Speaks for Itself

Since I have no clue what this picture is telling me, and I think that it is probably speaking in a foreign language, I am going to make this about Harry and Meghan.  I guess there are a lot of people out there who are upset with them for speaking with Oprah and saying that some of the royals were struggling over how dark the baby’s skin tone will be.  It seems that they didn’t mention which one of the royals made these nasty comments.  It really doesn’t interest me that much what the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have to say about anything, although I think that they are both fine people, but maybe the British don’t want any of the royal family trying to keep up with the Kardashians and airing their dirty laundry out in public.

I heard that Queen Elizabeth II is upset because Harry and Meghan have founded a yet-to-be-named production company and signed a multiyear deal with Netflix, which will pay them to make some documentaries, short-series, feature films, scripted shows and children’s programming giving the couple a global platform six months after they left the House of Windsor.  Supposedly the royals are, concerned this deal will distract from the work that other senior royals including Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge, Prince William, Prince Charles, and Camilla Parker Bowles are doing, but it seems that Harry doesn’t have a very close relationship with his brother or his father and you can’t pick your family, you just have to learn how to live with them.

OK, I am tired of watching Harry and Meghan on CNN and since I just brought a translator in for the picture, let’s get back to that as it may have something more interesting to say than what is coming out of Buckingham palace.  The picture says that it is worth a thousand words and it wants you to know that this photo was taken around midday, but you probably already knew that from looking at the short shadows.  There are some people sitting around the black and white striped umbrella tables, but they are hard to distinguish, because this was taken from a drone flying 400 feet above, which is the maximum altitude permitted for a small unmanned aircraft system to operate at, as going any higher would interfere with other aircraft in the sky.  Now you need to know why the drone was taking aerial photos of this plaza, well that is top secret and if I told you that, then I would have to kill you.

Written for Fandango’s Flash Fiction Challenge #109 where he has given us a photo which is supposed to elicit a response from the viewer, but that response may or may not be the same for each viewer, so go ahead and give it a try.

  1. My wife wanted to watch the interview. I started but dozed about 40 minutes into it. While dozing i had this weird dream about some drone flying at about 400 above an outdoor cafe taking pictures of some people sitting around the black and white striped umbrella tables. It was weird.
