Cropped and framed
Colour corrected and edited
Burnished and patinaed
To make a picture

Pic and a Word Challenge
Last week we took on the act of Creation. This week let’s put a picture in the Frame, or seek something else to inspire you in this photograph of a fresco depicting a Roman soldier astride a war horse, at the Museum of the History of Barcelona in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.
The Pic and a Word Challenge is (usually) a weekly creativity prompt offered (also, usually) 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 to illustrate your post, or any images 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: Creation
The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #278 was Creation, along with this photograph of autumn’s last vibrance in leaves decaying on a forest path.
