Lowercase

I walk by these every day and didn't see them, really see them, until today. Which figures, because the sky is all getting ready to storm and makes the shot look black and white. Which is kind of fitting today, I suppose.  Rrrrright? Right. My theme here at my Knoontime Knitting craft blog is Letterforms In Nature and the Built Environment.   Thank you for joining me...

Quotidian

Okay, I agree, this is a stretch, but do you have any idea how hard it is to find branches that grow downward? The plant with the large spatulate leaves is a rubber plant, which is where we got "chicle" from, or natural gum.

Poussez, Tirez

When I was young, I studied French.  One of the sets of stickers we had for the house was "Poussez," for one side of the door, and "Tirez," for the other.  They are pronounced POO-say and TEA-ray.  For some reason, those are two French words that I remember, to this day. The other day when I was on a different bus from my usual route, I looked up and saw a P above me.  Voila. C'est fini....

Noony!

And this was also on my bus route the other morning, on the other end at the terminus for the route. The little spiky things are pigeon deterrents. Remember, no post tomorrow for Sunday; we resume on Monday with the Letter O!

Paint the Fence!

"Paint the fence!"  "Wax on!"  "Wax off!" Thank you Karate Kid. And today's letter is...  M!  Ironically, this is the fence by which I stand every time I wait for the northbound bus near my house.  M's all over the place!

Too Literal

Tilt your head to the left when you look at it, and you will see... The Letter L! This is fun.  I wandered out today and got some pictures of the built environment for M, N, and P.  Stay tuned!

Konlabos. With a K.

(Any Rundown [the movie with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson] out there?) "K" was a tricky one.  I took three shots in total, but this is my favorite of them and therefore my image for today's letter.

Jump Out At You

I've noticed, in doing this project, that I've started seeing letterforms everywhere - the wheel wells of cars, branches of trees, even the intersections of power lines. This one reminds me of a day I spent at the park near my house during the summer.  I reclined against a tree to meditate with my eyes closed, (you know, it's called napping), and something made me open them.  A racoon stood...

There Is No “I” In Tree

I love these trees; and it finally occurred to me that it's because they're evergreens. Though, I do wonder what the folks in the neighborhood think of me wandering around loose, photographing the local flora.   Thank you for joining me for the A-Z Blog Challenge.  If you’re blogging in the challenge, please leave me a link so I can come visit you too.  If you have a moment, ...
