THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD – FEBRUARY 2022

Welcome and thank you for the visit.

This is the February edition of my photo challenge Pick a Word in which you are supposed to interpret in image any or several or all of the five proposed words.

This month I am offering simple words, but hopefully not too simple to interpret in photos.

The first two are taking you to Dolomites, showing Case di Viso, a preserved village (uninhabitated) with the architecture dating to the early 19th ct and a narrow alpine road that can take you there, meandering amidst green summer meadows.

Closer to home and in winter time there is a photo of the idyllic Bled in Slovenia presented in a subdued, almost colourless winter scene.

Finally, the arranged logs and a forward facing heron were captured in my Zagreb.

Have fun and see you soon!

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD -JANUARY 2022

Before I start challenging you with my Pick a Word photo challenge, let me wish you all a very happy and healthy year, less challenging in any way except well for blog challenges 😉

It is still fairly new and full of mistery so my first word choice for this month would be

INCOGNIZANT

To interpret it I chose a statue that I had captured in Funchal. It is a tribute to the wives of sailors that went to sea from that part of the city. The blindfolded female statue named “cabra cega” or blindman’s buff (as in the game) is a work of sculptor Sílvio Cró. Many have wondered why the sculptor chose this allegory for his tribute. My opinion is that the artist wanted to evoke the feeling of anxiety and despair that Madeiran women must have felt without knowing the fate of their men. Living with the feeling of uncertainty (not knowing) and faith (blind or not).

incognizant

The second word is

JUVENILE

Yes, I know that the first thing that would come to mind would be delinquency, but I was thinking of a happier image, like this one:

juvenile

Let’s hope that this year will have some merits and end the pandemic and in that regard I am choosing the word

MERITORIOUS

and I present you a statue of Gregory of Nin (Grgur Ninski in Croatian), medieval bishop of Nin who strongly opposed the pope and official circles of the Church and introduced the Croatian language n the religious services. 

meritorious

And the last two words for your amuzement.

Can’t think of anyone more utilitarian than Ćumil of Bratislava:

UTILITARIAN

utilitarian

and finally

ELAPSING

elapsing

Or what is the best way to seize the time?

I am glad to be able to post again and I look forward to your virtual company hoping that you have found my “sculptural” post challenging enough.
