Time ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #131

Frozen in the Frame, Fast Frames, Denman & Nelson, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
Walk/don’t walk
Stop/maybe don’t stop
Make up my mind
Wavering on this indecision
Irresolute at the crossroads
Considering east and west
North and south
All avenues open
None being taken
With nowhere to go
And all day to get there
I am not going

Thus I
Held fast
As time
Moves on

Frozen in Time
Fast Frames
Denman & Nelson
West End
British Columbia, Canada, last night, 2018
Last week we counted Moments. This week, let’s take our Time. Or find something else to inspire your creativity in this photograph of a man frozen in time on a street corner, in Vancouver, 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: Moments
Angel of the Ganga, Ganges River, Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh, India
Challenge #130 ~ Moments

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #130 was Moments, along with this Hindu woman gazing on a candle, floating on the Ganges River in Varanasi, India.

Seven memorable Moments this week. Thanks everyone!
