Speed ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #138

Built for Speed, Corvette Stingray, The Glancy Motor Hotel, Route 66, Clinton, Oklahoma, United States of America
Odes to a different time

Built for speed
Lived at a Main Street pace

The paradox
Of a mechanical world
As seen from this virtual realm

Because here am I
Everywhere at once

Yet nowhere at all

Last week we took a Selfie. This week, we’re built for Speed, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of of a Corvette parked right on Route 66 in front of the Glancy Motor Hotel in Clinton, Oklahoma, USA.

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.
