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.
