Choices ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #229

Which Door, Palacios Nazaries, Alhambra, Granada, Spain
In a world
Offering few choices
Of equal value

Either apparent
Or actual

Which is the better choice?

The options
Beg investigations

Which may or may not
Reveal the better choice
Apparent or actual

Should I choose
Not to decide

I still have made a choice

Which Door?
Palacios Nazaries
The Alhambra
Granada, Spain

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we were thrust into Otherness. This week, let’s make some Choices, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a pair of ornate doors at Palacios Nazaries on the grounds of the Alhambra in Granada, Spain.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Mondays.

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: Otherness
Tapas Bar, La Rambla, Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain
Challenge #228 ~ Otherness
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #228 was Otherness, along with this photograph of a woman looking back at the old normal outside a busy tapas bar on a busy side-street of La Rambla in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

Six bloggers explored the Otherness this week, but are released into the New Normal today, again. =) Thank you, everyone! ❤

Happy Creating!
