Thematic Photographic 135 Letters

This hangs from a corner in my living room, "He liked to go from A to B without inventing letters between." -John Angus McPhee


We're back at Thematic Photographic and Carmi's clever choice this week with the theme is "letters" and take note he set the mark high this week for some really great fun....there are so many ways we can go.  If you want to learn more about this game check it out here http://writteninc.blogspot.com/2011/02/thematic-photographic-135-letters.html
I sent this postcard to my Grandma from my first far away field trip to Chicago! My very own little girl hand writing in the best cursive letters I could write!  Plus, I wrote this on the bus ride home!

So taking a quick trip around the house oh what else can I find with letters...

Livres is French for books....which hold a entire mass of letters .......
Of course Jack and Diane are there....
Then from inside a park in St. Paul sits a special bench .....
Then pictures from last year around late summer I went to Linden Hills, and stopped by The Rose Garden and Peace Garden and the Bird Sanctuary...these next photos are from the Peace Garden.... a lovely place to just be very still.....
and....off in one of the gardens......
Harmony is constant in the Peace Garden.....
and ....
and prayers are many on any given day......
and.....
Remember that life can be like a game of cards...and words made up of all kinds of letters can be like toothpaste....once you let it out ....you'd have a hard time trying to put it back!  Once you've said something, you can't just take it back. Somebody said something like that somewhere....

A great tour with a lot to learn from your letters. There's more to the alphabet than you think.

Love the postcard to your grandmother. A little piece of the past.

The cursive writing was fabulous. The kids today don't even learn it.

Carmi said...

You have the coolest world view, Karen, and I'm always blown away by your ability to explore a theme so creatively and broadly.

I'll never get tired of your vision.

I love that top one! Is it old?

And the others - clever of you to spot so many, even the hidden ones.

This is a truly lovely post, Karen - so thoughtfully and carefully constructed.
Thank you for making my day a whole heap better!
