Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we stormed the Fortress, this week, let’s make sense of the  Chaos or seek something else to inspire you in this photograph of a bicycle rickshaw driver caught in a moment’s reflection amid the burgeoning chaos of the Chandni Chowk night market in New Delhi, India.

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: Fortress

Nature's Architect, Fortress on a Hillside, Portland, Victoria, Australia
Challenge #274 ~ Fortress


The word for last week’s challenge was Fortress, along with this photograph of a natural sand castle in Portland, along the Victoria, Australia coast.

Two bloggers defended their Fortress this week. 😉 Thanks guys!
