Assignment: A Photographic Alphabet

a2

I give out the occasional assignment to my students, and here is one I particularly like.
For this assignment, you are trying to find elements in a scene that form letters. Not a sign that has letters on it, but pieces of wood that make a K shape, the side of a swing that forms an A, or metal bars on a firepit screen that make an X.

X

k
This kind of assignment is also good for taking a look through your archive of images to see what you may have already taken that contains letters!
