Photo-Microfic: At the Track

This is the first in a run of microfiction stories that were inspired by pictures that I took.  All pictures in this set were taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3 and edited in G+.  Click on the picture for a larger version.

At the Track

The horses line up at the gate all in a neat row.  Behind me I hear the bellow of a man who has bet the last of his money on a sure loser.  I don’t spoil the surprise for him.

“Baby needs a new pair of shoes,” he yells out.

His baby will be wearing a newspaper wrapped around its feet before the end of the day.  I wonder if I haven’t become too jaded to care.  I wonder that instead of caring.
