day 84 of 365

I love this word -- SPLASH! It's so positive, so action-packed, so memorable. It's filled with light and boldness and watery freshness. So this rendering, in brick, underfoot, seems sort of paradoxical.

Andrea at Hula Seventy has compiled a list of favorite words submitted by readers -- check them out and see if your favorite is among them.


  1. What a great find!! Me too - I love that word. I has so much 'energy' to it!!!

  2. I like it because it is a wet word, I like the capture a lot too.


  3. nice shot! I love little hidden gems people have left behind for us to discover. What compels someone to carve, engrave a word like that into a brick somewhere, what's its story?
    SPLASH! great word. I like Applicable. just rolls off the tongue...

  4. Love the word a lot too, but I'd have loved to see some splash of water on the shot too ;)

  5. michel -- this is a brick in the sidewalk in barnstable village. when the sidewalk was put in, people and businesses purchased bricks with their names on them. splash was a hair salon and day spa, now moved elsewhere.

    m. hassan -- i thought of giving this a water feature, but don't plan most of my shots so went for the dry look.

  6. I'd never thought about the word 'splash' before. I do like it! A word that I have noticed that I like is: pumpkin.
