Love ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #73

Maintenance, The Taj Mahal, Agra, Uttar Pradesh, India
Even the purest love
Requires a little maintenance
From time to time

Timely Maintenance
The Taj Mahal
Uttar Pradesh, India

Last week we sought out what is Other. This week? Let’s heal our Love, or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of the greatest ode to love: The Taj Mahal in Uttar Pradesh, India.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Sunday mornings.

Each week I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as points of inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, prose, poetry, fiction, non-fiction, longread or just a few words. You are welcome to use these two elements (photograph and word) literally, thematically or metaphorically. If you create both images and words, all the better.

To participate:

  • Use any title you like
  • Your response can be words and/or an image
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • Place the challenge’s Pic (if you use it for inspiration) and Word prominently in your post
  • Mention that you are responding to the Pic and a Word Challenge
  • Add a link to this post in your response

To help us find your response — whether on WordPress, Instagram, Flicker, Tumblr, etc. — you can also:

  • Add a comment on this post to announce your response
  • Apply the tag/hashtag “Pic and a Word Challenge” or “#picandawordchallenge to your post

Each week, I’ll list the previous week’s responses at the end of the new challenge. I may also share some on my social media: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Tumblr, etc.

Last week’s challenge: Other
Market Day Donkey Cart Parking, Kuqa, Xinjiang, China
Challenge #72 ~ Other
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #72 was Other, along with this photograph of a Uyghur family “parked” outside the Kashgar Market in Xinjiang, China.

Just one Other post this week. Thanks CJ! =)
