‘Paradise Regained’ – FFfAW (59th challenge)


This week’s photo prompt is provided by S. Writings. 

After the terrorist attacks, there was an unsettling calm. An eerie silence that lasted for days. The city was bleak, sad and gloomy, with few signs of life; drained of all colour like a black and white war film. Few people ventured out and those that did were cautious and fearful.

Then one day the cows arrived. Big, bright, bold ones daubed in vibrant primary colours. Painted with hearts, flowers and smiley faces. We saw them everywhere; outside tube stations, in parks and at the entrances to international banks.The sun came out and people began to smile again. Paradise was regained.
