As long as people have been around, they have tried to communicate with each other. As a means of getting the message across as clearly as possible, idioms and sayings have found their way into our language. Now, because "a picture paints a thousand words", I thought it would be nice to make this a new photo challenge. The idea is to choose an idiom, or a saying, ( even slang is allowed) and illustrate it with a picture. Each week we'll co ver two letters of the alphabet, okay? To play along, click here.




In a pickle
When you find yourself in a pickle, you're in trouble.


Jack-of-all-trades
A jack-of-all-trades is someone who is capable of doing many different things.

    The Jack-of-all-trades is my hubby, the Amazing Egyptian Dude. :)

    I have to tell you, this is my favorite meme of all -- it was such a great idea!

    I can NOT believe we both chose "In a pickle!" ROFL! Mine is very different though!

    Jack of all trades is a GREAT one! My hubby is like that! Less as he gets older... but he ONCE was like that! LOL!

    Those are new to me... since English is not my mother tongue :)
    Great pics for the idioms, love your shots.
    I live in Spain and I often travel to France on hols, that's why I could easily post one for my idiom!
    Have a great wednesday!

  12. I teach English in Asia and idioms are one of the hardest lessons. Once they catch the concept though, they think finding the meanings is a hoot.
