Storytellers Vol. 18 for February 2018

The Grryo community believes that every picture has a story, and that we are all storytellers by nature. Each week, on Wednesdays, we challenge our Instagram community with a story prompt and ask our followers to stop by and leave a line or two of fiction to accompany the featured photograph. At the end of the month, our four favorite stories are published, along with the photos, on our website. We would love for you to join us and share what each photo says to you. So come and browse through this digest and join us next month!
