ABCs

E is for Elephant.  I don’t know how many times I said that this morning.  Learning the alphabet is an important part of children growing up, but it can also be a helpful exercise for photographers.  Not just because, “Me photographer, me need to know how to speak and write,” but for many reason.

The other day I went out and about Knoxville and tried to find letters.  I had a specific word in mind because that helped me focus a little bit more.

But you would be surprised how hard it is to find letters, “in nature.”

I love this exercise because it makes you look at the world differently.  It’s a lot harder than I thought it would be.

I encourage you to try this, even without a camera!  It really helps you “see” objects not just how they are but as how you would like them to be. (Deep, right?)  So in the end I ended up with the word I wanted.

I’m still going to play around with the letters more, and also try to find some more letters.  Feel free to share what you find!
