THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD IN APRIL – Y4

Welcome to the April edition of “Pick a Word” photo challenge (now running for the fourth year) where you are supposed to post photos (a single photo or as many as you like) as a response to one (or more/or all) of the offered word(s) in the challenge.

The following choices is what I had in mind for April. I know that some of these words are tricky to interpret in images, but still I wanted it to be a real challenge. 😀 

resplendent

alluring

plagued

copycat

timeworn

This event was originally conceived as part of the Thursday’s Special photo challenge that also included three more recurrent (or not) photo themes per month but lately, due to the busy life I have only been posting this challenge once a month. Still, I am sure that this is not going to stay this way and that I will be able to go back to posting more themes more regularly some time soon. In the meantime, I hope you will enjoy the little that I have to offer.

 

*Images taken at the following locations: 

  1. Venice
  2. Dugi Otok, Croatia
  3. Somewhere in Brittany
  4. In Istria
  5. Portovenere, Italy

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-07

After a month’s break I decided to challenge you again with things from the past.

What Traces of the Past have you found near you or on some of your travels? Are they remains of the things once built and now in despair, the remains of natural occurrences or from your personal past? Whether they provoke admiration or make you nostalgic or even horrified, here’s an opportunity to showcase them for this photo challenge.

In the valley of the river Mincio in Lombardy there is a scenic little village by the name of Borghetto sul Mincio. If it weren’t for flocks of tourists coming to the place, I would call it one of the most idyllic and authentic villages in Northern Italy.

This is my last challenge before my summer break. Still so many things to finish before I manage to catch a breath. I’m planning to post a challenge again on 16 August. 

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: LOST IN DETAILS

They say that details create the big picture.

For this challenge I did not give you the title macro photography, or an abstract (which is too obvious when you look at my photo above), but lost in details, to give you an opportunity to interpret it differently. I am so looking forward to see how you will do it 😀

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-05

You are wrong if you think that I forgot about the Traces of the Past photo challenge. I am a day late, but here it is – Traces of the Past in colour this time. 

With the largest square in Italy and one of the largest in Europe, and its many narrow alleys and canals Padua revealed its hidden beauty to me on a beautiful night walk.
