You may have noticed that this time there are no dilapidated, decayed or abandoned subjects. We are approaching the end of the year and must do our best to keep the spirits up. Maybe some  images from my eclectic gallery will inspire you to join the challenge.

Thursday’s Special: Pick a Word in September

You have already noticed that I had introduced a new, recurrent theme within Thursday’s Special – Pick a Word. Every month I offer you a choice of five words of which you are supposed to pick one or more (that’s up to you) and to illustrate it in a photo(s) of your own. This time I’ve decided to post photos for all five of them. What kind of a challenger would I be if I wasn’t able to respond to all my five words 😀

So, here is what we got today: 

  • Populated

  • Time-sensitive

  • Companionable

  • Burgeoning

  • Clandestine
