The other day, Emily at Glitter and Ink asked if I've ever seen photos of things that look like letters used to spell out words. I hadn't. I mean, I get the concept, but I had really never seen the effect in its true form. It reminded me of cutting various letters out of magazines and piecing them together to create words.
A Google search yielded a few results, all of which I liked. I decided to give it a try.
When I first started my photo challenge, which I abandoned about 4 or so months in, one of the results I was looking for was to be more observant of the world around me. What better way than to look for letters in everyday objects?
The site I liked the best mostly used nature and machinery to create the letters. I decided to broaden that and find letters anywhere I see them, including nature, machinery, architecture and other everyday objects. Let me be the first to tell you, letters are everywhere!
Since I started thinking about this, when Emily suggested it just over a week ago, I have seen letters in everything. Some, of course, more than others. I've even snapped a few. I have a ton of ideas for "themes" and just need time to find what I'm looking for. I want to gather a few of each letter with different shades and colors in the background.
My only rule for myself is that I don't want to create letters. They have to be already created. So if I see something that *almost* looks like something, I won't alter it. That's just the journalist in me.
In a few weeks or months I may have something to show you. I'll have to see how it goes.
Wish me luck. And thanks Emily for the awesome idea!
