Latest Update: Final Image: Driving Miss Doherty


Hello there!
I participate by the first time in "the journey begins" challenge, and it was really a GREAT expierence. I  haven't had time to participate in another challenge again, in fact, nowadays I've got a lot of work, but I'd like to try this one. I hope I'll have the time to finish it. 

This concept came to me as I was thinking in a world after a social revolution and a lady that is like the last symbol of the old society, who behaves strangely. Here is a rough description:
“I imagined a world in ruins. War first, and then a social revolution has reduced its population and economy drastically. Life is hard. 90% of the planet surface is desert. Water is extremely difficult to find. There are water smugglers who live in the desert.
Vestiges of tha past splendor can be found everywhere, but now they’re only ruins.
Despite the terrible heat, or the dangers of the desert, the lady takes a walk everyday. She was an aristocrat member of the old regime, living in the golden palaces of the rulers. And though nowadays she is as poor as everybody else in the city, she resists herself to abandon her old life style, and like a strange ritual, she goes everyday with her dog, her umbrella and her bucket, to the old font, the place that used to be her private garden, and which now is a refuge for desert smugglers. She have no fear.”
If I finally decide to go ahead with this concept, I hope to complete the background story and all the narrative details.
Greetings to all!
