Weekly Photo Challenge: Companionable

This weeks photo challenge from WordPress is a little, um, difficult. Companionable? Like, really? Are there not enough cute kitten and puppy pictures out there? The photo Gods want more? Must I really succumb to the challenge and post a photo of a furry animal? I think not. Here the definitions provided by WP which was sourced here.


  • A person who is frequently in the company of,  associates with, or accompanies another.
  • A mate or match for something.
  • A handbook or guide.
  • A member of the lowest rank in an order of knighthood.

I don’t live with any furry companions nor do I have any associates and I certainly keep the talk about The Hub to a bare minimum – there’s some things I wish to keep sacred. A handbook & guide I have but it seems rather lame to use a photo of the cover of one of the many popular travel guides, and I don’t know a low ranking Knight … yet.

Therefore …

Islands and oceans are my companions.

This was my response to the Weekly WordPress Challenge: Companionable.  In hindsight, I wish I would have taken a photo of my big feet in Jamaica. Oh well, next time.

What does companion mean to you? Is it a loved one, a good book or a spoonful of Nutella?

    I love the idea of taking pictures of your feet on different beaches. I may steal your idea!
