Pick a Word January 2022

Lost in Translation’s Pick a Word January 2022

Well Paula has really given me a test this time with her fabulous words. Let’s see what I can conjure from my photos this month.

INCOGNIZANT

JUVENILE

MERITORIOUS

UTILITARIAN

ELAPSING

I hope I have done well.

A variety of ch and ck

Cee’s March Alphabet: Letters Ch or Ck in the the word

One of my all time favourite songs to listen while you have a look at what I found for Cee’s Mid Week Madness Challenge

Where to begin? I guess a few birds are in order. I did get a bit lazy and didn’t name everything but if you want to know a bit more drop me a comment and I’ll give it a go.

I did a bit of digging and found there are a lot more than I first thought. I had to include an old favourite at the end

Clock the Time

The Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Clock The Time

These words came to mind when I saw this challenge. My quote for the challenge – can you guess who said this?
“I’m late, I’m late! For a very important date! No time to say ‘hello, goodbye,’ I’m late, I’m late, I’m late!”

Of course it has nothing to do with my images of some timepieces I have clocked.

Squares and Circles

Oh how could I resist this photo challenge from Nancy: Squares and Circles

“This week’s challenge is all about mixing squares and circles. Photography is a rectangular activity. Even though our lenses are round, the output is not. You can create a round image using post-processing methods. You can also create a round image using scissors on a print (very old-fashioned). I used the cropping tool in Photoshop to put my round pie into a square.”

Perhaps I was attracted by the thought of Nancy’s pie

“For anyone who is interested: my pie is a take on a blueberry sour cream pie recipe that I found online.”

Enough of the prologue, thanks for the challenge Nancy, let’s see what I can come up with and find some circles in squares. Stop laughing Becky. Mmmm pie 🙂

Broken

Trying to think about Debbies quotation-inspired image photo challenge. What can you conjure up from the quotation below

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.   Stephen Hunt (British author)

Perhaps a clock image?

or a clock that may not work

Or something broken

or a broken shell

perhaps some street art
