THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD – APRIL 2021

To write or not to write; to post or not to post; that is no longer the question.

Here is the newest Pick a Word with five words for you to interpret in photos. As usual, you can post a photo for one word or more or all five. I am glad to be here and will be happy to see you entries.

Here it goes:

FURRY
PICTURESQUE
RAPID 
SUBTERRANEAN
APOCALYPTIC

I already know that you will like “picturesque” and probably hate or resent my apocalyptic ;).

furry
picturesque
rapid
subterranean
apocalyptic

You may have noticed that I don’t provide definitions of the selected words. I omit to do that on purpose so that you can make your own research and find other synonyms. I enjoy that process a lot, and naturally I think that you might too.

Once again you are free to chose either of the provided words, or more or all of them.

Have fun!

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

SCORE INFO: Sara perche ti amo, Ricchi e Poveri
