    July 2021 Photography Challenge

    Are you a logophile? How about a philologos? Or maybe even a logomaniac? If you don’t have a clue what I’m saying, then you probably aren’t any of them. I just happened to be all three. Logophile, philologos and logomaniac all have the same meaning. They all mean “lover of words.”

    One of my favorite things to do is to learn new and unusual words, often in other languages, that have very complex meanings. What might take a whole sentence to define something in English, might have a single word in another language. One of my favorite such words is Petrichor, meaning "the earthy smell in the air after it has been raining". I also sometimes feel a bit of schadenfreude when I know someone deserves it. For example, if someone cuts me off in a parking lot to get a closer spot, only to lose it at the last minute. Shadenfreude it the "pleasure derived from someone else’s misfortune".

    I also happen to be a photophile - lover of photography...and many other examples of such words. In fact, I especially love combining photos with words and their definitions.

    July’s Photography Challenge is based on this concept. I challenge you to take a photo and add an unusual word with it’s definition. Create a Layout around your photo/word combination. Please Note...the word and it’s definition should be placed ON the photo itself....as in the inspiration here. Any word is acceptable.

    Remember our monthly challenge rules:

    Your page must contain at least 75% Lilypad product. Your page should be posted to the Lilypad Gallery and then linked to the July Challenge Layouts thread so it can be tracked, and to this thread.

    The Lilypad uses a percent system for our challenges; the number of challenges you participate in determines the store discount you will receive at the end of the month:

    2 challenges = 10% off
    4 challenges = 20% off
    6 challenges = 30% off

    If you complete 7 challenges, you will receive a coupon for 30% off, plus you will be entered to win a $50 gift certificate from the Lilypad! The first seven challenges will be posted on the first of the month; the eighth challenge is the BYOC challenge, which is posted on BYOC release day. Each page counts for one challenge (you cannot use one layout for multiple challenges).​

    Thank you @FarrahJobling for hosting this month's challenge. This was a fun one!! Now, I need to go back and create a folder on Pinterest and start pinning more of those! Here is my layout.

    What a fantastic challenge! I'll enjoy following this and seeing what words are used. I am a "photophile" but not so much the other two :)

    I was stumped at first and didn't think I could do this one, but my art (in this case, my mindless diamond art) takes me away where nothing can intrude. Digital art does the same but I couldn't decide how to photograph that. :circles

    Sorry Farrah, my photo is old. When I saw this awesome challenge I knew what I wanted to create - but I'm simply not going to get out to a lake, sea or ocean any time soon.

    Oh this is such a good challenge - it got me thinking! And I think I'm going to challenge my kids to find unusual words and do something similar while we take a road trip so maybe some of the car time spent on phones will be on something mind stretching lol.
