Bread ~ Pic and a Word Challenge #253

Bread, Fresh Baked Sourdough, Pictures from Home
Observe the beauty of a loaf
The tortured rending of gluten
As the dough expands under heat

Observe the beauty of a woman
The tortured rending of ego
As the gaze exploits under heat

Pictures from home, 2020

Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we looked for an Opening. This week, let’s bake some Bread, or seek something else to inspire you in this photograph of rent gluten in a loaf of freshly baked sourdough.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) 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: Opening

Opening, Plaza de Nazaríes, The Alhambra, Granada, Spain
Challenge #252 ~ Opening

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #252 was Opening, along with this photograph of an open door in an alleyway of the Plaza de Nazaries in the Alhambra, Granada, Spain.

Three bloggers found an opening this week. =) Thank you everyone!

Happy Creating!
