Upriver ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #177

Seaspan & Tug, Steveston, Fraser River, British Columbia, Canada
Against both tide and current
Headway slow and steady
Though the river hurries by

Upriver Tug
Fraser River at Steveston
British Columbia, Canada, 2019
Last week we found ourselves Entangled. This week, let`s get Upriver or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a tugboat pulling a barge up the Fraser River in Steveston, 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: Entangled
Entangled, Squamish, British Columbia, Canada
Challenge #176 ~ Entangled
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #176 was Entangled, along with this photograph of entangled pilings in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada.

Seven bloggers got Entangled this week. Two folks posted poems in the very entangled verse form Pantoum which is a pretty awesome way to respond to this prompt. =) Thank you, everyone! ❤

Happy Creating!
