Trennypoo’s Inspiration for his word:
“I’m a musician and I love music, music production, technology and photography and this was a brilliant creative outlet that I could use to fuse them all together. The reason I took the photo was because I love the ‘simplistic complexity’ that I see every time I see the back of my monitor speakers and wanted to capture that.”
Searchsid’s Inspiration for his word:
“I am a fan of Paulo Coelho, this word is on the cover of one of his book ‘Like a flowing river’ where he has shared short stories. I like all those stories and hence wanted to share the word.”

Week 3 winner – ‘Mamti_017’

The winners have loved their prizes!

Mamti_017’s Inspiration for her word:
“I often see dented road signs, but I loved the irony of this one. It was such a sunny day and the sign caught my eye, I thought it was funny because I was in one of those moods where I really didn’t care which way I went…. as long as it wasn’t to work! I also love that you can see the reflection of the huge trees in the corner the sign.”
