It is a been a few weeks since my last post. I’d like to thank all of you who expressed your concern and wished me well during my sick leave.

Now that I am back I would like to resume photo challenges with  PICK A WORD theme. Here are the words to choose from:

I hope you’ve enjoyed my selection of words and images.  As usual for this theme, you can do one word, or more or all five. It’s up to you.

To join the Thursday’s Special photo challenge you are supposed to:

  • Make a photo post on today’s theme, before next Thursday.

  • Link to this challenge post, and tag your post #thursdaysspecial

  • Say hi under this post.

 P.S. Owing to the top-notch functionality of the WordPress post editor linking to your entries has become a time-consuming and strenuous process, so I will no longer enclose links to your entries in my post cause they are in the comment section on the same page anyway. I will use that time to see more of your posts and to comment there instead.


  1. Oh, that lovely brickwork in the last one. All of them superb. Immaculate is what I hope for my living room after the carpet cleaners arrive in 10 minutes! But their task is mountainous. A dog lives here. I hope you’re feeling rested and relaxed. It’s strange not having you about regularly.

  5. Glad to see you back and hope your hand is totally recovered. I always enjoy your 5 words and your photos for it are all wonderful. I love the clouds covering the mountains in your first yet giving you the definite feel that you are higher than they are if you could see their summits. My favourite though has to be the cat. It looks like it has whiskers on the ends of its ears. Mine

  15. So good to see that you are back. I adore the lynx. Did you come upon him (her?) in the wild? The bridge is also a great photo showing off your skills.
    I preferred to stick with one of the words this time – whiskers it is.

  24. I like your photos with each word – and the spanning is my top one of the post. Reminded me of St Louis – and just a nice shot of that art spanning the water. Amazing what folks can build….

    the music was so soothing in this post – listened to it twice.
    here is my entry for this month’s pick a word…

  27. Hiya Paula, lovely to see you back in action and I am so glad the hand has improved. Not so happy about your foot though. I have had issues with my left foot for a while now and although I can walk it becomes very painful after a while. Love the lynx and the flower photos the best, I have one for you, but not until Tuesday so I hope the pingback works. If not I’ll pop back and add the link. Take care!
    Jude xx
