Diving boards and wimming pool

Swimming pool at Olympic Stadium, Berlin, October 2019

Welcome to One Word Sunday, and over to all of you to join the challenge with your own olympic post. We should have had the Tokyo Olympics close to opening, but in this year of delays and cancellations, I thought we’d honour it with a week of olympic posts – as wild an interpretation of that as you like.

Thanks to everyone who brought us some drama last week. Big thanks go to Brian for a great array of natural drama; to Robert for some dramatic silhouettes; to Tom for his slightly ominous drama; and to Little Pieces of Me for the stunning equine shot.

If you didn’t have chance to check them out, the links are below.


Next week’s theme will be interior.

    • Yes, it is still open to the public apparently but not when I was there. This view is from the main Olympic stadium, which is open to the public as long as ether aren’t any events on.

  1. Hi Debbie Fab photos I love the structural lines and hues of gold and turquoise. I should have waited again to have my second cup of coffee this morning- because I have gone off on a tangent and my brain has associated Pool with your Olympic prompt! So have posted Pool of Light- so sorry:( I must take more time to think before I post in future after making a similar gaff yesterday. Anyway I will leave the incorrect post now I have posted it with apologies to you. 🙂 Caryl

    • Don’t worry Caryl, I really don’t mind. I’m just happy to prompt something. When I first started the challenge the idea was that people could use their own single word but everyone used mine and that’s the way it has developed. Feel free to go as wild as you like 😁

  2. Lots of nice lines here, Deborah. Hopefully your weekend’s going well. As usual, I’ll see you soon, sooner than Iike in that I can’t sleep as long as I’d like in the morning. 🙂
