The A-Z of the Natural World – Letterforms In Nature

2016-04-01 KK A

I waffled on whether to do the A-Z on my craft blog, because I’m already doing it elsewhere.  But I already went out and took half the photographs for my idea, so I decided what the heck, I’m gonna throw my hat in the ring.

So here’s what I’m doing:

The A To Z of the Natural World – Finding Letterforms in Nature

Inspired by calligrapher Margaret Shepherd’s blog, I decided to take a different tack – rather than look for human-made letters around my neighborhood, I am looking for letter shapes in the natural forms made by botanicals and objects in the built environment.  Over the next month, I’ll share with you my discoveries, beginning with today:  A In a Tree.

Enjoy, and Happy A-Z!

  1. Yes, I could see it even before you mentioned it! What an interesting project to take on! I will be waiting to see what else you find.

    1. I’m so pleased! I wasn’t sure it would come across, or that I would even be successful at finding shapes. I went out on my lunch walk and after about fifteen minutes, I started seeing things everywhere and wished I had a notebook with me.

      Tomorrow’s B is a bush, and I’m not sure what I was thinking when I took it; but now that I typed “bush,” I wonder if that wasn’t my point at the time, lol.

      NEXT time, when I take the rest of the photos, I’m bringing a notebook with me! 🙂
