Last week we were Golden. This week? Let’s find the Iconic, or seek something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a monkey on a rooftop, basking in the smoggy morning sun of New Delhi, 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: Golden

Golden, The Ganga, (Ganges River), Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India
Challenge #76 ~ Golden
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #76 was Golden, along with this photograph of a rowboat on the Ganges River, the golden city lights of Varanasi beyond.

Four precious responses this Golden week. Thanks everyone! =)
