Risk ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #183

Risk Cacophony, Hotel Continental, Tangier, Morocco
Where might have been cacophony
Strokes live within the harmony
Such vital vessel filled
To the edge of overflowing
Yet some subtle restraint
Where plaster once was white
Vibrant colours paint
A whole which comes across
So beautifully

Continental Hotel
(The Oldest Hotel in Tangier)

Taken during travels, 2019

Last week we sought out our Shadow. This week, let`s take some Risk or look for something else to inspire you in this photograph of vibrantly coloured Moorish designs in the Continental Hotel of Tangier, Morocco.

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: Shadow
Shadow and Light, Museu de les Ciències, Ciutat de les Arts i les Ciències, Valencia, Spain
Challenge #182 ~ Shadow
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #182 was Shadow, along with this photograph of light and shadow falling on the architectural features of the Museu de les Ciències in Valencia, Spain.

Nine bloggers found themselves in Shadow this week. =) Thank you, everyone! ❤
