Thursday’s Special : Pick a Word…

Restlessness : never at rest; perpetually agitated or in motion:


Paula (lost in translation) has given us a new challenge this week…

“I’m starting something new today. I’m giving you five unrelated words that are neither synonyms nor antonyms. Pick one and depict it in photo(s).”

  • Turbidity

  • Restlessness

  • Transience

  • Prolific

  • Decrepit

All are interesting words and I could choose any one of them, but because I live near the ocean and love its restless, ever-changing character I have chosen “restlessness” for my word of the week.

Which one would you choose?

  1. I think I would choose decrepit. I have a lot of decrepit photos.

  2. Wonderful photos! I chose turbidity. Had to look up the word to be sure I knew what it meant. 🙂

    • I thought of turbidity too but also had to look it up. I will pop over to see your interpretation.

  3. I especially like the second shot!

    • Thanks Cindy, we have forecast for big storms this weekend with King tides so may get more ocean photos, if it is safe enough to go out…

  4. mmmm, I smell your sea (or ocean 🙂

  5. Both of these are great depictions of restlessness.

  6. I love this, I really do. Have a happy day, Pauline (or what’s left of it). Thank you!

  8. It should be mine, shouldn’t it, Pauline, but I don’t have such wonderful photos to illustrate it. 🙂 Hugs, darlin!

  9. beautiful shots- I love their movement

  10. The sea is a brilliant choice, but if I tried, a restless sea over here would be grey, as would the sky.

  11. Definitely restlessness – great shots, Pauline 😉

  12. The ocean is a good choice for restlessness. Love the waves PP.

  13. I would have selected restlessness too – and love the water – refreshing shot.

I would love to get to know you, please leave a comment
