Weekly Photo Challenge: Letters

For this week’s challenge, share a photo with letters — no matter the alphabet. You can capture a neon sign, a sentence scribbled in an old phone booth, a random letter that’s seemingly out of place, or anything else. – The Daily Post

Finally there’s a challenge that I felt instantly inspired by 🙂 Thats something to be happy about especially when I’ve been REALLY slow with this whole blogging business.  I’m trying to get time to do this but I’m promising you all, once I get pass April 30th, I’m drafting up a ton of blogs and watching a million movies, and that night (if I don’t pass out from fatigue), I’m going to bake.

Before I start rambling about the future, lets focus on the present challenge.

Letters are what we as bloggers are in love with after all, right? We write and we communicate with our words (or our pictures/photos if you are a photographer to some level).  We communicate with our creativity!

Letters form that language we use and sometimes they may differ from ours and it may not even be English for all we know.

BUT, lets start with the basic!

Pumpkin Inferno 2013

Word Search at Pumpkin Inferno 2013 🙂

I’ve been to Pumpkin Inferno for a Halloween event for the past two years.  You can check it out HERE and HERE! Its a pretty awesome event and one of my most impressed times was seeing this word search for the first time.  They usually have a board on the side with words you need to find.  What words do you see?

Aside from that, Pumpkin Inferno is all about exploring different cultures and areas and whatnot so they also have another language there.  I present to you, Egypt and hieroglyphics 🙂

Isn’t it just so cool? I don’t have a great picture of it from 2013 but I think one of the links up there have a nicer version of it from the 2012 event.  I’m not sure.

Now, language and letters aren’t just as direct as symbols and words.  Sometimes, it comes in one of my favorite alternate forms.

Music notes and rhythms and the instrument to carry that out, which is why I loved the whole public piano project in Montreal last year.  Too bad, I didn’t actually have the guts to play it in public but I did get a picture near my work.

Thats some awesome letters for me.  It opens up my creative outlet completely.  Music communicates so much about feelings, emotions, the best stress reliever, etc.  It helped me through my younger days and its been helping me till now, even when I get frustrated at being stuck in a rut from not improving fast enough for my exam preparation. I’d say music notes/piano keys are a fit way to express letters, no?

  1. Wow, love the photos of the pumpkin inferno! What an event. I’ve never heard of anything quite like that. And, the public piano thing too, also very interesting. Did people have fun playing them?
