Tourists ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #217

Tourists, Mesquite Flat Sand Dunes, Death Valley National Park, California, United States of America
Yea, though I walk
Through this valley of death
I will fear no hardship
Among these many tourists with me
While the road and the cafe comfort me
No shadow falls to Earth
But footfalls

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we visited America. This week, let’s travel with Tourists, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of tourists exploring the Mesquite Flats Sand Dunes in Death Valley National Park, California, USA.

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: America
In Our America Love Wins, HI Portland Hawthorne Youth Hostel, Portland, Oregon, United States of America
Challenge #216 ~ America
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #216 was America, along with this photograph of an uplifting and inspiring sign in front of the HI Portland Hawthorne Youth Hostel in Portland, Oregon, USA.

Three bloggers looked for America this week. =) Thank you, everyone! ❤
