Rugged ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #159

Rugged, Near Ucluelet, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
Sometimes I am unsure
Whether the sea eats into the land
Or the land eats into the sea

No matter
The beauty
Remains the same

In the yin and yang
Of it all
It is all the same

Last week we looked up, waaaaay up, at a Giant. This week, let’s risk the Rugged or find something else to inspire you in this sunset photograph of the rocky Pacific coastline near Ucluelet on Vancouver Island’s rugged west coast, 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 images
  • You may use my image in your post, or any image you have created
  • 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: Giant
Giants, Badlands, Drumheller, Alberta, Canada

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #158 was Giant, along with this photograph of the eroding badlands of Drumheller, Alberta, Canada.

Five bloggers found themselves in the presence of something Giant this week. Thank you, everyone! =)

Happy Creating!
