It’s time for the next-to-the-last edition of Melli‘s ABC photo challenge! Most of you know the drill by now, but in case there is anyone new, Melli challenged us to find letters of the alphabet in the things around us. We’re not to make the letter out of anything or take a picture of the letter itself in a sign: we’re supposed to find it “as is” in nature or in an object where you wouldn’t normally look for a letter. We’ve been taking two at a time, and this week we’ve been looking for W and X.
For weeks the only W I could find was in the structure over a street. You can see Vs and Xs there as well, but I am using it for W.
But then on the way to dinner at the mall tonight, Jeremy pointed out a W tree:
And at the mall I noticed the “bark” on this fake palm tree looked like Ws. It’s not the clearest picture — it was taken with Jer’s cell phone.
I found Xs in a multitude of places. The first ones were these little camp tables:
The fencing that this morning glory was climbing last summer:
Another fence in someone’s neighborhood:
In the road:
On the door and window of this little house:
This one I happened to remember from my archives when I saw a real red barn today. Years ago I was on a committee to redecorate the toddler nursery at church, and we chose a barnyard theme. This is the door, with Jeremy demonstrating how it works. He’s about 5 there. He’s in most of the pictures I took of the project with his arms spread in a “Ta-da!” pose. It was cute.
And here is the wall:
I didn’t paint the mural — my good friend Valorie who is VERY talented did. But I did help stencil the little animal border on the other walls. That was a fun project.
