Paula is back with her monthly challenge Pick a Word! If you haven’t seen it or participated before – have a look at her lovely blog Lost in Translation. Excellent photography and simple rules for the challenge.

Thank you my dear! How interesting. I’ll go see and maybe my tired brain can rev up some brain cells to join in the fun❣️
♥ So glad to hear from you! Are you in the wildfire regions? I hope not – we get terrible pictures on the news.
Oh my yes… and having much trouble with the lack of decent air but we are here and not running for our lives. So very 😔. Take good care💛
You too ♥
Your images are all so striking!
Why thank you!
I loved all your images but especially the one illustrating cuisine. Mmmmm, I would love to have sampled some of that.
Very tasty I can assure you! Thank you for commenting!
I agree with Paula. The bridge is particularly breathtaking. (Especially if one was walking across it!) Fun post, Ann-Christine/Leya. 🙂 Have a great weekend!
Thank you, Marsha! I felt a bit shaky …high up and very narrow. No rails. Wishing you a lovely weekend!
Same to you! 🙂
Between you and Paula I’m in total confusion now! Too many words swimming in my head, but lots of beautiful images 🙂 🙂
Well Jo, then you know how I am feeling most of the time in these confusing, uncertain and messy times…But I am happy we landed some beautiful images in the midst of it all! ♥ Wishing you a walking and wonderful weekend.
Love the span!!
Mmm, lovely memories of that day!
Wonderful illustrations for each word. I think SPAN had my favourite image.
I thought it would be – my favorite too, Mandy. I had some fun with this one.
how cool that you mentioned P’s challenge in the LAPC this week and then she came back – the timing – so spot on
and the photos for the words here were quite enjoyable – span was my fav – for the colors
Coincidence, isn’t it? Thank you. I believe she was pondering on coming back, but maybe I hit the final button.
Looks like a fun challenge.
Thank you –
Ann-Christine, your entry is beautiful, instructive and inspiring. I love Roman bridges and would like to see that one in Switzerland. Bougainville shot ”screams” estival. I do love all images.
Thank you so much, Paula. I had some great moments…and there will be more in October! It will be interesting to see the other entrances!
