Waiting ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #207

Waiting, Hotel Continental, Tangier, Morocco
He waits
In silent patience
For orders
From the terrace
While a surreptitious lens
Captures his composure

Continental Hotel
Tangier, Morocco

Last time we plumbed Depth. This week, let’s see what comes to those who Wait, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a waiter patiently waiting in the Continental Hotel, 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.

The previous challenge was: Depth
Depths, Hotel Continental, Tangier, Morocco
Challenge #206 ~ Depth
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #206 was Depth, along with this photograph of cracking paint in Langley, British Columbia, Canada.

Four bloggers explored their Depth last time. =) Thank you, everyone! ❤

Happy Creating!
