Rage rises

They say

The world


Girls are made
To be had

Last week we entwined Limbs. This week, let’s protect our girls, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of two Uyghur girls in Kashgar, Xinjiang, China.

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: Limbs
Badlands Erosion, Drumheller, Alberta, Canada
Challenge #154 ~ Limbs

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #154 was Limbs, along with this photograph of an eroded canyon in the Alberta badlands of Drumheller, Canada.

Four bloggers stood on their own two  Limbs this past week. Thank you, everyone! =)
