Pic and a Word Challenge

Last week we illuminated life with a magical Light. This week, let’s find some  Protection. Or find something else to inspire you in this photograph of a father and young daughter riding a motorcycle, both helmetless, but both wearing a face mask, in Jakarta, Java, Indonesia.

The Pic and a Word Challenge is a weekly creativity prompt offered Mondays.

With each challenge I provide a photograph of mine along with a single word. The challenge? Use the pic and/or word as  inspiration to create something — a photograph, a painting, video, 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 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 challenge’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: Light

The word for last week’s Pic and a Word Challenge #319  was Light, along with this timelapse video of sunset at Amphitrite Point Lighthouse in Ucluelet, British Columbia, Canada.

Two bloggers shone their magical Light this week. Thanks!
