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

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.
- 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
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.
