Crossing ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #121

Sunset Crossing, BC Ferries, Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay, Strait of Georgia, British Columbia, Canada
The afterglow of stormy weather
Sky and sea a dusky amber
Water gently rippled

A deep breath
In place and time


From what was
To what will be

From the holding on
To the letting go

Last week we took in a deep breath of Atmosphere. This week, let’s take a Crossing. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a tug and barge crossing Georgia Strait late into sunset, British Columbia, Canada.

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

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: Atmosphere
Isolation, Chesterman Beach, Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #120 ~ Atmosphere

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #120 was Atmosphere, along with this photograph of tiny human figure beneath an expanse of clouds on the vast sands of Chesterman Beach, Tofino, British Columbia, Canada.

Four bloggers breathed in the Atmosphere this week, and one took an extra breath! ;). Thanks everyone! =)
