Looking at How Letters are Chosen, Not Just What is Said.
When Sally Russick started her Focus on Life photography challenge, I looked upon it as a chance to change my photography habits, which at the beginning of the year consisted of snapping pictures of my pets and the snow, in addition to photographing some of my jewelry.
I wasn't sure I would be able to take a worthy picture every week, but so far I have managed to come up with something. And most weeks I have managed to comment on most, if not all of the blogs of the other participants. As I sit before my computer this evening, and put together this week's entry, my heart is full of grief, as I lost a friend and former co- worker to cancer. She admirably shared her last year with many friends on Facebook, so I can hardly shirk this very pleasant obligation and skip a week.
This week's prompt was "Typography." I got stuck on this one, since I wanted to take some pictures of old advertising on the sides of buildings. Surely some of the towns near us still had some.... Nope. All painted over. So here is the one site I found with interesting metal work letters. Kind of fitting it's a cemetery, no?
I found the metal work quite lovely. It might have been better to take the pictures in nicer weather in full daylight, but I tried to do the best I could with photo editing.
And, just for fun, here are a couple of pictures I took at other times.
I hope you go visit the other participants linked at Sally's blog, The Studio Sublime.
