Alphabet NYC

My workdesk this week is still, honestly, cluttered with many of the same projects from last week since I have been sick most of the past week.  I have, however, been doing more work on the computer with my photographs. So, I decided that since I am a photographer this week I would share the results of my computer desk for WOYWW.

Please visit Julia Dunnit's website at so you can stalk other artist's workspaces.

I participated in Beth Nicholls' Do What You Love e-course in 2011 and it was one of the best things that I have ever done.  The activities inspired me to capture how I see the world around me.  Beth's course gets you  in touch with yourself, with what you are passionate about and her prompts for taking pictures has helped me immensely.

One activity that she offered was a large list of prompts that I made into cards and she suggested that we draw a few cards, grab our camera and play.  Well, as much as I enjoyed her prompts, all to help us see things differently (circles, the color orange, etc), I went one step further - I started to see letters around the city. I am still working on completing my alphabet but here a few examples.

And here is the letter that I have had the most difficulty finding (and it was so close to my apartment carved upside down into a railing of a mansion on Fifth Avenue).  

Can you see the Q?

As I mentioned, this is still a work in progress but I am having so much fun unconsciously finding letters in the city around me.  I find them without even looking for them.  Crazy what your mind can do when you don't even push it.

I encourage you to be a little more cognizant of the world around you.

What can you notice in a different way that you normally walk past every day?

  13. That is so clever - I love it!! What a great idea for cards, especially for blokes or people who don't do 'cute' (ie ME!!). I'd love you to find an L.L.J - for obvious reasons :D
