Portal ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #243

A River Runs Through It, MacLaurin's Crossing Suspension Bridge, Cheakamus River, Whistler, British Columbia, Canada
A bridge and long shadows
Span the gorge and river roaring
There a portal offers
Welcome unknowns
In a forest of possibility

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we carved out time Time. This week, let’s enter the Portal, or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a suspended foot bridge spanning Whistler’s Cheakamus River in British Columbia, Canada.

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: Time
Joshua Tree Forest, Joshua Tree National Park, California, United States of America
Challenge #241 ~ Stone
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #242 was Time, along with this time-lapse video of clouds racing above the Tantalus Mountain Range, along the Sea to Sky Highway, in British Columbia, Canada.

Three bloggers made Time this week. (But there is still more time 😉 ) =) Thank you! ❤

Happy Creating!
