Picture This! -- Our Next Assignment

Letters: The Alphabet In The Image
Our next Picture This! assignment is "Letters: The Alphabet in the Image." There are many common symbols and signs around us, some of which are obvious, while others can emerge from parts of a scene. The letters we are seeking for this alphabet soup can be parts of signs that are isolated and obvious or objects that seem to form letters on their own, the "X" that marks the spot or the "M" in the way peaks of houses mark the horizon--the more imaginative the better. This big "R" was spotted on a high floor of a parking garage; the lens used and point of view create a scale that seems to rival the buildings of the city in the background.
